Please join us on Friday, July 31 for a spectacular sunset tour of Narrow River as Narrow River Kayaks presents the 8th Pettaquamscutt Paddle to benefit Narrow River Preservation Association. Arrive at Narrow River Kayaks at 5:00 p.m. for a brief orientation and presentation by NRPA Board Members before setting out on this approximately 2.5-hour guided twilight tour of the lower Narrow River.

Witness the splendor and peacefulness of the tidal inlet and salt marsh as the full moon rises over the Atlantic while the sun sets on the western horizon.
