We decided to paddle straight to Mills Island, which is about 2 miles into the bay and then circumvent the island. This was an excellent paddle. Birds are abundant on the island, most of which has no landing points due to the marshes that extend out from the island.
Even on a Saturday we saw only a handful of power boats in the distance. As you reach the south eastern parts of the island you are looking due south on Chincoteaque Bay. The wind picked up in this area and the water became slightly choppy. On a windy day this could make for an exciting trip.
As we rounded the southern end of the island and passed George's Landing (another possible put in point), we stopped to speak to a gentleman from Connecticut busy sailing a kayak in the open waters in that area. He remarked we were the first people he had seen all day and he was having a great time sailing.
This has become one of our favorite paddling spots due to the abundance of wildlife and lack of power boaters.
