Cranes tide information

Guest guest

Recommended Posts

From Evans, _Sea Kayaking Coastal Massachusetts_, p. 75.

> Use tide tables for Portland. High tide at Plum Island Sound is 12 minutes later, low tide is 37 minutes later. Mean tidal range is around 8 feet. Avoid paddling at low tide due to extensive mud flats. Fox creek is passable two hours on either side of high tide.

The two hour either side rule has worked for me, but don't linger after that.

From Pavilion Beach, go up the Ipswich River, hang a left around the beach and follow your nose staying more or less to the left until you are following the serpintine channel through the marsh. The crux move is when a long, straight channel branches off the right at a right angle. Take it out under the bridge and into Essex Bay.
