Nauset Marsh
North Trail

An easy and scenic paddle in the Nauset Marsh estuary during an incoming high tide. The sand bars flood over, opening up a vast amount of space to paddle up to the Coast Guard Station and parallel to the Outer Beach in the estuary where many birds nest in the hummocks of the dunes. The paddle generally lasts three hours with a short break on the Outer Beach where you can walk next to the surf of the Atlantic and watch the seals fishing in the currents. The tour starts in the Nauset Marsh from the Hemenway Boat Landing in Eastham and the water trail route varies each day dependent on tide times.
