Here are some of the paddles we do:
- A point-to-point “Three Bay” trip from Shagwong Marina in Three Mile Harbor to Accabonac Harbor by way of Gardiners’s Bay. This trip includes a loop around Wood Tick Island, past rocks that are home for a variety of water birds. These are among the most pristine waters you will find anywhere in the world as they are all tidal, running in and out of the Atlantic Ocean.
- Noyak Bay Explorations. The North coast of Southampton is still one of the most undiscovered areas to paddle. We plan at least four adventure paddle tours to the area, which runs due west of Sag Harbor in Great Peconic Bay.
- A fast down-wind run from Lazy Point to Montauk. This is one of our signature paddles. We drop the group off at Lazy Point and enjoy the “waterfence” as we paddle in Gardiner’s Bay alongside Hither Hills. The paddle ends at Navy Beach, where our truck picks up our group — or you can arrange to meet a friend and enjoy a lunch at one of Montauk’s famous Navy Beach restaurants!
- Gardiner’s Island Paddle. This paddle involves a boat (so we have to adjust the fees for the cost of the boat) but it’s a paddle not to be missed! We explore the ruins of the old artillery forts along the western-most edge of the island. Then we drop the group along the shores to do a scenic paddle along the coast, taking in as much of the scenery from this mysterious island as possible!
- Shelter Island round-trip paddles. We have over five special paddle adventures that allow us to explore and enjoy areas of Shelter Island that are normally only accessible by boat!
These tours require logistical concerns, are three hours and require a high level of expertise.
Beginning in September, we offer the following special SUP Tours:
- The Peconic River Paddle: the longest river on Long Island. Originating in bogs and wetlands of the Long Island Pine Barrens, weaving its way through protective wilderness, and flowing eastward to the Peconic Bay, the river is slow-moving, making it ideal for our standup paddling trip.
- A nine-mile standup paddle tour of the Cartwright shoals, through Gardiners Bay along the bluffs and waterfences all the way to Three Mile Harbor and Hands Creek Landing.
- A unique Stand Up Paddle tour of the bays and waterways of New Suffolk, on the North Fork. This tour provides a new and different perspective of the land and helps fund donations to the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund.
