Barnstable Harbor Kayak and Climb Sandy Neck Lighthouse[more]

Now through Sep 2

Long Pasture Sanctuary, 345 Bone Hill Road, Cummaquid

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. Traveling the great marsh by kayak offers a whole new perspective on nature, and an intimacy with the tide.

It also allows you to get into shallow waters, where larger boats can't go!

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 come ashore at the Sandy Neck barrier beach lighthouse and have the unusual privilege of climbing to the top to see the beautiful view.
