Wildlife Refuge Paddle on Long Island NY

Looks like Thursday (Sept 8) is still a great pick! Latest weather report shows sunny, up to 91 degrees (getting hotter) and the least wind of the week at 11mph (SW).

Long Island NY

Meeting at Carmans River Canoe and Kayak by 10:15. ( I’ll hope to be there by 10)

Non residents need to go in the office to pay the $5 launch fee

Residents need to go in the office with proof of residency.

Launch looks to be on the East side of the office. Parking lot is on both sides of the office building. Although I was told we could park anywhere, I will ask where the best place is to leave our cars out of their way of their Rental Customers.

I am bringing a sandwich, a snack, and 2 bottles of water hoping to hit a sandy spot for a lunch break 1 1/2 hours in (figuring a leisurely paddle out looking for wildlife, a 20 minute break, and then paddle back for about a 3 hour tour (a 3 hour tour) (dating myself?)

Sound good??? Don’t forget sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses along with a pfd!

Camera and binoculars have been recommended.

Great time today
It was beautiful weather and a really great place to paddle. Hopefully some others from this site can make it!
