Eld Inlet


Sea Kayak - Eld Inlet

Enjoy a paddle from Boston Harbor into the northern half of Eld Inlet to Fry Cove County Park. We'll stop for a leisurely lunch and ride a light current and light wind back. This will be a maximum SK II+ level of difficulty.

  • Casual
  • Mileage: 8.0 nm
  • Maximum Wind: 12 kts
  • Maximum Waves: 1 ft
  • Maximum Currents: 1.5 kts

Meet Boston Harbor boat launch at 9:00 or earlier for 9:30 am launch. Bring a mask.  BH can get a little bit busy on nice weekend days, so I'm hoping this time will allow us to beat the crowd.  

The plan is to stop, lunch at, and return from Fry Cove.
