We have direct access to some of the most pristine coastline in New England, and offer guided Eco- Tours to introduce all to our Natural wonder. Sharon Baldi will take you out on a nature inspired paddling trip. She is a certified NOLS kayak instructor, a naturalist who has led trips up Mt. Washington, and has a wide array of knowledge about the history, ecology, and biology of our area. As a member of the Audubon Society, Sharon will surely be able to answer many of your questions pertaining to wildlife and give you a great, educational experience.

Our New Location in Westbrook CT, is located directly on the Stewart McKinney wildlife preserve. Part of a 950-acre salt-marsh sanctuary. The area is used by over 280 species of migrating neotropical birds during the seasonal migrations. Thus, the area has been deemed a “National Preserve” by the Audubon Society. It is one of New England’s top paddling spots and a pure, unspoiled beauty.
