LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: Perryville is a very pretty paddle in the northernmost edge of the Chesapeake Bay. There are osprey and eagles that live in the area and a beautiful old railroad bridge. We paddle out of the kayak launch site in Perryville Community Park across Mill Creek and Furnace Bay to Carpenter’s Point and the Northeast River. Lunch is on one of the sandy beaches.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
It can be a fairly long paddle of about 9 miles and it can be windy. In July through October, aquatic weeds cover the area and make paddling difficult. Long boats, 14 ft or more, make this paddle a lot easier and a skirt is generally recommended. We modify this trip in the early season to accomodate beginning paddlers and shorter boats by decreasing the length to 6 miles with lunch at the end of the paddle. The area is popular with fishermen and there is a fair amount of powerboat traffic. The water is tidal and must be paddled at high tide.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
We can usually depend on seeing lots of wildlife: eagles, osprey, an occasional deer.
