King's Beach in Lynn...closed due to bacteria count

Recommended Posts


Don't really think it's a cause for fear, just caution. I would just suggest rolling a bit further off shore for the time being. I paddled from Marblehead to Salem and back yesterday and rolled only where the water at least looked clean (although that's no guarantee). I also made sure I used nose clips. Besides, we paddle with all manner of creatures on the water and I think the motorboaters are much more dangerous ;)

Even when the bacteria counts are low, the inner harbours are rife with stink boat pollutants. What this means is that you should avoid extended contact with the water near the beach, not the ocean in general. As noted elsewhere unprecedented rains have caused these closings.
