Norwalk Islands

Many places to explore while paddling on the Long Island Sound.

Long Island Sound Kayak Tour

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 kayaking 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.

*Note: None trailed program. No Rental boats available. Must bring own boat.

Please arrive 20-30 minutes before the program start time to get set up with your equipment so we can get the program started on time.
