Marrowstone & Indian Islands

Trip

Sea Kayak - Marrowstone Island Circumnavigation

We’ll be paddling against a declining Ebb current until reaching Lip Lip point then the current will help us paddling until reaching Point Marrowstone where there might be something to play in. Who knows after our lunch break we’ll explore the water way between Indian Marrowstone Islands until we pass under the new bridge on south end of the island where we’ll hitch a ride on an Ebb current back to Indian Island County Park.
