Nissequogue River paddle
July 11, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
This is a beautiful paddle on the Nissequogue River, which for most of it is sheltered from the wind. There is lots of wildlife, ospreys, shore birds, turtles, etc. It starts by launching at Nissequogue River State Park where the river is very wide and ending at an old water mill where the river turns narrow where we will have a self catered lunch, returning to our starting point as the river tide turns.
The launch is in a N.Y. State Park. $8 entrance fee per car or Empire Pass.
(This fee may still be waived by the State.)
Remember, event time is launch time.
“Wet Launch” Time is 10:00 am.
