Lieutenant River in Old Lyme Kayak Paddle -- CANCELLED

Sunday, July 15, 2018, 11:30 AM until 5:00 PM

Registration is not Required
Join us for a paddle this Sunday on the Lieutenant River in Old Lyme.  Be there at 11:30 to unload and we will shove off promptly at 12:00 to paddle upstream to see a family of Bald Eagles.  Double your money back guarantee if you don't see one.  This is very protected water on a small stream so a good paddle for any skill level.  Hi tide is at 2:00 so we will have the current with us going up stream and with us again when we return.  Plan on 2 to 3 hours.  Those who want to continue for a longer paddle can then head downstream to where the Lieutenant River meets the Connecticut River.

Directions:  Heading east on I-95, take exit 70, turn right on Route 156, drive less than half a mile, just past Ferry Rd on your right you will see a dirt parking area- this is the launch site.  If you have gone over the bridge over the Lieutenant River, you have gone too far. 

Bring a whistle, personal flotation device, sunscreen, camera, binoculars, water, snacks.  For those who want, we can gather after at Ferry Landing State Park on Ferry Rd.
