Saturday June 7, 2014 Hammock’s Beach Paddle Trip. Join in an exciting paddle trip to Bear Island within Hammock’s Beach State Park at Swansboro. We will meet at 10:00 AM at the State Park’s Visitors Center, launch by 11:00 AM, and return mid afternoon. As we paddle through the salt marsh to the eastern end of the island we will experience the scenic peace and quiet found inside the barrier islands and have an opportunity to see many native birds and, if lucky, dolphins on the hunt. The Crystal Coast Canoe and Kayak Club rates this paddle as moderate to intermediate. We will enjoy a break and lunch on the secluded ocean beach before returning. Bring lunch/snack, water, sun screen and mandatory PFDs. Information about the park may be found at www.ncparks.gov.
