Rhode Island’s sheltered waters are ideal for padding, canoeing, and kayaking

Even a brief glance at a Rhode Island map and its many-faceted shorelines and water bodies shows that the Ocean State could keep paddlers busy and interested for many, many seasons. The point here is the variety of the state’s water bodies. There is ocean shoreline (for ocean kayaking); the shoreline, including many small coves, of beautiful Narragansett Bay; and, finally, the many inland ponds and streams that lace through nature preserves and expansive state parks. Boat launches for small craft are found throughout the state, making put-in easy for canoes, kayaks and other car-top vessels.
