We are located in Westbrook, CT and unspoiled Old Lyme, CT on the Black Hall River at the salt water Great Island Estuary. Due to our unique location in a wildlife preserve–away from marina boat traffic, and just a short paddle away from restaurants, cafés and breweries–BHO is considered one of the best spots for paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, and outdoor marine recreation in the Northeast.

We offer sales, rentals, lessons and outings for kayaking, kayak fishing and stand up paddle boarding.

Call us at: 860-434-9680


Our full service paddlesport center is located directly on the Great Island Estuary and the CT River Canoe and Kayak Trail.
