Essex Bay Stand-Up Paddle Boarding

Monday, September 3, 2018 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM

The Essex River area is a beautiful place for paddle boarding. Wrap up the summer by exploring the peaceful scenery of the salt water marsh. We will meet at 3:00 at the rental facility (Cape ANN SUP, 35 Dodge Street/ Boat marina, Essex, MA) to fill out rental applications, secure payment, put on life vests, adjust paddles to appropriate height, put on sunblock, and put on life vests. Between 3:15 to 3:30 we will do some brief introductions, provide beginner instruction, and get out on the water. Paddle is roughly from 2 to 2.5 hours going upstream, and then coming back during high tide.
