Kayaking Cape Cod's Scenic Waterways: Barnstable Harbor/Sandy Neck
Join Mass Audubon’s Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary on a naturalist guided kayak trip! Our experienced naturalists will lead you away from the crowds to discover the rich aquatic life and beauty of Cape Cod. Join us as we kayak Cape Cod’s largest barrier beach and salt marsh system and see for yourself why this is one of the state’s most impressive coastal ecosystems. Launching from Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, we will explore the many tidal creeks and islands of the harbor, looking for shorebirds, osprey, horseshoe crabs and other creatures of the marsh. We’ll also come ashore at the Sandy Neck barrier beach lighthouse. Barnstable Harbor can be windy and choppy. Weather may shorten the trip – depending on conditions of seas and wind.
You must be 12 years or older to participate.***Ages 12-18 must be accompanied by an adult. Previous kayaking experience (within the last few years) and swimming ability are required for this trip. Participants will be required to wear a life vest.
DIRECTIONS: Cross the Sagamore Bridge onto Cape Cod. From Route 6, take exit 7 to Yarmouth Port. Go north one mile on Willow Street, and take a left onto Route 6A west. Proceed for approximately one mile, then take a right on Bone Hill Road (where you’ll see a large sign for the Harbor Point Restaurant) and a smaller sign for Long Pasture. Follow Bone Hill Road past the upper trail head parking area to the end of Bone Hill Rd and look for a large white Sanctuary sign on your left. Take this driveway to the Visitor Center parking area. Parking is available in the field to your left, and around the circular drive in front of the Visitor Center.
