Watersports

It’s easy to see why the sport of sea kayaking has exploded along the Rhode Island coast. Our rugged coastline and many small islands serve up endless exploration opportunities and unmatched coastal scenery. From Blackstone Valley Rivers to Souther Coastlines, Rhode Island outfitters offer half-day, full-day and overnight adventures. Kayak rentals are available by the hour or by the day and many outfitters offer informative clinics that will help prepare you for an exciting coastal adventure. But don’t limit yourself to the ocean, explore our many backwood rivers too.
