|Sea Kayaking Maryland's Chesapeake Bay
Day Trips on the Tidal Tributaries and Coastlines of the Western and Eastern Shore
by Michael Savario and Andrea Nolan
The first and only sea kayaking guide to the Chesapeake Bay region offers information and guidance for 30 paddling trips.
Trip descriptions include important information on put-ins and take-outs, winds, and currents, equipment, paddling techniques, and safety issues. The authors enliven their instruction with informative sidebars on topics such as salt marsh ecology, wildlife, and social and maritime history. They also touch on low-impact paddling techniques, hypo/hyperthermia awareness, and many other paddling-related topics
Sea kayaking is booming in the Chesapeake region, and the state of Maryland is fully supporting paddlers in finding access and creating routes and safe places to explore. This guide describes dozens of trips along the Eastern and Western shores, in the Bay proper, and in its tributaries.
