LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: Fairlee Creek is a tidal tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. There is great lunch beach at the entrance, across from the marina. In the summer this is a very popular boat anchorage and we tend to not use it on weekends because of the crowds at the entrance. At high tide, we can paddle a long way back in the creek.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
This is a relatively easy paddle as long as the wind does not pick up. A 12’ or longer boat is recom-mended. Basic kayak training with some follow on paddling is the only requirement for this paddle. We typically paddle 7-9 miles. Bring sunscreen, water, lunch, and all required paddle gear.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
For windy days a spray skirt is great to have. Numerous waterfowl, to include eagles are seen on the side creeks of Fairlee Creek. When travelling upstream to the headwaters, take the left fork to approach a large beaver dam.

Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
Closely adhere to the speed limit driving through the small towns.
