Habitats & Wildlife
Pocasset Harbor is a protected water body that’s great to explore by kayak or paddleboard. From salt marshes to sandy beaches, there are lots of scenic places around the harbor to discover.
If you’re new to paddling and want a short, wildlife-focused trip, head up to the marshes of Pocasset Heights or Wings Neck. Here, you can look for wading birds like herons and egrets. Want a longer journey? Paddle all the way around Bassetts Island past Scraggy Neck and through Red Brook Harbor.
