This endurance paddle excursion is the perfect excuse to spend half a day on the water.

Set out from our launch at Washington Street Extension, and paddle 5 miles up the Nantucket harbor to Polpis Harbor where we will make landfall and enjoy a simple but delicious lunch. Watch the crab fishermen, recreational sailers and shore fishermen commune with their nature as you deepen your connection to yours. After a 45-60 minute picnic on the beach, we will turn around and paddle back. This excursion is for those paddlers with some level of basic skills.

Notes: Because it is far more safe to paddle into the wind first, this tour is only available with a light north wind, ensuring an easier paddle on our return.

All necessary paddle boarding equipment is provided.

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
