The Muscle Ridge archipelago is one of the most beautiful sea kayaking destinations in the world. Rugged, remote, seldom visited by tourists, and full of raw beauty, it is our favorite destination to guide! After a short one-hour paddle from Birch Point State Park, you will enter this fabulous group of islands, full of tidal lagoons, hidden passages, sandy beaches, and abundant seals. You will visit one or two different islands on foot where you can explore, swim, and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, before making the return crossing home.
