Kayak through the Thimble Islands

Stony Creek Town Ramp or Beach

A wonderful chance to kayak throughout the Thimble Islands and explore Outer Island. This is Not a beginner kayak; you should feel comfortable navigating and controlling your boat and be comfortable with waves, wind and surf and know basic self-rescue. We will meet at the Stony Creek, Branford launch site and prep our boats for launch. This is partly open water, so there may be some wind or chop. We will paddle out and around the islands, finally landing at Outer Island (a McKinney Natural Preserve), where we will land our boats for a while and wander the island. A docent will meet us and give us some basic information about the island and the flora/fauna there. Bring a snack to relax on the island and spend a bit of time wandering. We can paddle about the island or harbor. For our return, we will hug the islands and then the shoreline - viewing the beauty and interest along the way. The entire trip should take about 3 hours, depending on the strength of our paddling group. We paddle as a group - we will leave together and return together. If you prefer to paddle on your own, please do NOT join this particular outing - WE WILL Start and end together - for both safety AND fun. *Warning: parking is limited, largely on-street and strictly enforced. Please plan to unload your boat quickly onto the launch area, moving it to the grass section of the launch and park your vehicle.* *Life Preservers are Mandatory for this outing.
