A paddle and a hike – what better way to spend a summer afternoon? Join us as we paddle across Essex Bay from the Trustees of Reservations boat dock to Choate Island. We’ll beach our boats for a tour of the island, stopping in at the Proctor Barn, the White Cottage and the Choate House. Then we’ll continue on to the highest point on the island to take in the spectacular views from the summit where Cornelius and Miné Crane are buried. After the hike, we’ll kayak around the island to see the island from the water (tides permitting).
We’ll supply the kayaks and lifejackets. Please note: You must be a competent swimmer to participate in this program, and have some previous kayaking experience. Pre-registration required.
