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.


Now, in the Summer!! The Driftway launching ramp  and  The Spit.

    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.
