SWISS SKI CLUB KAYAK/CANOE TRIP
Saturday AUGUST 20,2016
12:00 to 3:30 PM
Join us for a Kayak and/or Canoe trip on the Nissequogue River on Long Island.
The Nissequoque River is a tidal river which runs with the tide fed from the Long Island Sound which means it runs in 2 different directions depending on the tide flow. This trip starts in Smithtown at the Paul T Given Park on Main Street and we will paddle about 5 1/2 miles to Kings Park. Transportation will be provided from the Train Station and from the end of the trip back to the Train Station or to your car at the Park. The rental company will provide this service. The PADDLE trip generally takes about 2 1/2 Hours on the River. We will be paddling with the flow of the river so it's not too difficult for beginners.
More information/directions by car can be found on the link attached below:
You will need to pay in Cash or Check the day of the trip at the launching area. Best to bring cash!
