Who We Are
Founded in 1998, NSPN is a non-profit organization devoted to helping sea kayakers at all levels enjoy the ocean and improve their skills. Our home base is the North Shore of Massachusetts, but we range up and down the beautiful New England coastline.
The heart of our club is a “pass it forward” culture of peer teaching and learning, with a membership ranging from seasoned experts to novices. Key activities include paddling trips, skills sessions, camping trips, winter pool sessions, workshops and social events. We support members seeking leadership and coaching training with our Leadership Training Fund.
We are a member club of the Maine Island Trail Association and are stewards of two MITA islands in Casco Bay.
