Paddling on the Westport River

Recommended Posts

Two years ago a day trip, paddling on the Westport River, was offered as an official NSPN outing. Due to weather conditions, this trip was cancelled and, unfortunately, never rescheduled.

Does someone have put-in information (I don't recall the name of the trip leader from two years ago)?? Does anyone have any interest in participating in, or leading, such a trip??

Hi Helen,

RICKA ( http://www.ricka.org ) has several Westport River trips each year. Put in information is available at http://www.krabach.info/mapsections/horseneck.htm

(Click on the red dots.) The west branch of the Westport is a leisurely paddle, and you can also explore the east branch. The bay entrance to the Westport can have some pretty rough conditions so be prepared if you venture out.

Both branches in the Westport are nice. The East gives you more distance.

Both put-ins are near wineries.

Both routes are well described with maps and directions in Lisa Gollin Evans' AMC book "Sea kayaking Coastal Massachusetts" pagees 303-313
