One of the best was to enjoy the natural beauty of the Massachusetts North Shore is kayaking the placid waters of the Great Marsh—the largest continuous stretch of salt marsh in New England, extending from Cape Ann to New Hampshire.

The Castle Neck peninsula on the Crane Estate is a vast barrier beach that protects the tidal estuary of the Essex River basin.

Running along its back side is the Castle Neck River, a superb location for paddlers of all skill levels to explore these sheltered waters.

This intimate kayak tour offers the perfect vantage point to observe the unique environment of the salt marsh and the wildlife that calls it home.

Keep your eyes peeled for herons, egrets, and other shore-birds—with luck we may even spot an osprey soaring overhead!

Depending on the wind and tide conditions on the day of the trip, destinations may include a beach landing on Castle Neck or one of the various islands in the Crane Wildlife Refuge.

Please note: Participants must be competent swimmers and age 15 or older.

While appropriate for all levels of kayak skill, this trip is physically demanding.


Equipment policy: For the safety and convenience of all participants, CraneOutdoors provides lifejackets, paddles and kayaks for all paddle events.

The use of personal kayaks is not permitted for any CraneOutdoors event.

Thank you for understanding.
