Experience Level



A small flotilla of dog-free (and mask-free) MOAC canoeists and kayakers will paddle the famed Scarborough Marsh after work on Friday, June 12 at the optimum time tide-wise.

Scarborough Marsh is the largest salt marsh in Maine, and its ecological significance cannot be understated. It’s best paddled at high tide, which occurs about 5:30 p.m. on Friday.

Although the marsh is tidal saltwater, this route resembles a lake or river, and it’s suitable for canoes and kayaks or all types, including “rec boats.” We’ll take an out-and-back route that will last about two hours.

Meet at 5:30 p.m. June 12 at the put-in, which is the “clamdiggers’ beach” at Pine Point in Scarborough, about half a mile north of Route 9 (Pine Point Road), located on DeLorme Maine Atlas and Gazetteer on Map 3, sector B-3.

Bring canoes, kayaks, paddles, PFDs, bug spray and drinking water.

No vetting, NO DOGS,.

No boat? Leader has space for two boat-less wannabe paddlers, but must make arrangements in advance. Call Scott Andrews at 773-9609 or email

After we’ve taken out, we may go for an alfresco lobster roll or clam plate at a nearby restaurant.
