I’m looking for a put-in at the north end of the sound, near Somesville. Does anyone know if the passage between Somes pond and the sound is navigable?
Is there any particular reason you want at the north end? I'm paddled Somes a couple of times, but I've never really payed much attention to put-ins other than the one I use over on the east shore. (Pic-nic area with plenty of off-road parking.) Also, I'm not sure if you are from that area or not, but if not, be warned that there can be a fairly large tidal range there, so what may look like a good put-in at high-tide can leave you a big surprise when you return to take out!
There is a launch area in Sommesville-- right on the sound itself—I’ve paddled to there from Seal and Northeast Harbors up the sound—make sure you time it with the tides
