Driftway launching ramp, gateway to The Spit in Scituate MA

A tad windy but still a good day to get out on the river. When the tide is low the Driftway is a good spot to go in. Firm sand and gravel all the way down to the water and enough depth to the Herring River (tributary of the North River) to launch a car-top craft at any time.

By kayak, The Spit is twenty to thirty minutes from launch. The Spit in Scituate is a sand bar that at low tide uncovers a broad expense of clean sand.

 

In the summer, it’s the most densely packed marina on the coast.

    Enjoy your web-site especially the short articles and photos of the N. River. May visit with my kayak.

    • Hope you do, it’s a great river.
      We’re now getting into that time of year when I feel that I’m sharing the water with a lot, I mean, a lot of other boats. This last winter was so mild that I didn’t put the kayak away but kept going out all winter. Had it to myself, so to speak.

      Enjoy this season and may it be another long and safe one.
