Sea Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling Connecticut, Rhode Island, and the Long Island Sound

Book Description

The kayak touring, stand up paddling, and kayak fishing along the Connecticut and Rhode Island coast is some of the finest in the country. Most of these waters are protected from large ocean swells, while ocean currents allow for lively waters and abundant sea life.

Along with over 100 photographs, Sea Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling Connecticut, Rhode Island, and the Long Island Sound provides readers with over 40:

  • Kayak tours, and rough water play areas, for the beginner and advanced paddler
  • Preferred areas for Stand Up Paddlers
  • Kayak fishing areas and tips
  • Maps with overviews of the paddling circuits and launches
Utilizing the author’s vast knowledge of these waters, Sea Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling Connecticut, Rhode Island, and the Long Island Sound is an exceptionally comprehensive resource for all car-top boaters in this region.
