This is an open water paddle around the island. It is for experienced paddlers who can paddle in tidal conditions that can be windy and choppy at times. The distance around the island is 9 miles. A boat that can handle open water and a spray skirt is needed.
If a combination of wind, current, and tides are an issue, there are inlets and beaches to explore on the more protected waters of the Chester River side.
