We'll push off from the mainland and paddle the water trail for 3 miles, until we reach the sandy beaches of Bear Island. Over three miles long, Bear Island is covered in large sand dunes and has one of the largest stretches of unspoiled beaches in the area.

Upon reaching shore, we will hike around, watch for laughing gulls and flying sandpipers, spend time looking for shells on the beach before we paddle back to mainland. You will want to make sure you bring your camera!

Cost: $35 for students/members. $45 for non-members.  

Includes equipment, transportation, and instruction. No experience is required but some prior experience is suggested. Mandatory pre-trip meeting.
