The Saugatuck River in Westport, Connecticut is a very scenic route out to the Long Island Sound and the Norwalk Islands.

We have many possible routes to take depending on the wind and currents. We can circumnavigate Cockenoe Island, Chimons Island and possibly around Shefield to get a glimpse of the lighthouse.

On windy days we can paddle along the shoreline with a possible trip into Bermuda Lagoon. As this is an intermediate trip we hope to get some fun conditions to paddle in at some point during the program.

The Norwalk Islands were created during the last ice age and have since been home to dairy farms, mansions, and now large populations of waterfowl. The Nature Conservancy recognized the significance of these islands and purchased Chimons Island to create a National Wildlife Preserve.
