SoFo: Nature Paddle At Northwest Creek With Mike: Family

Saturday, June 23, 2018

9:00 am to 11:00 am - Call SoFo for reservations. To rent boats or paddleboards, contact Mike Bottini at (631) 267-5228 or mike@mikebottini.com

June is nesting time for our native turtles, including the saltwater turtle that has adapted to living in the lower salinity waters of the estuary: the Diamondback Terrapin. We will paddle the shoreline of Northwest Creek in search of these handsome turtles, look for evidence of their nests on shore, and discuss current conservation efforts to protect this species. We will also look for signs of the River Otters that moved into the creek in 2015. Kayak, canoe, and SUP rentals available: $40 single kayak; $60 tandem kayaks and canoes; $50 paddleboard (SUP). Lifejackets are included.
