Paddling

Lake Champlain, the nation's sixth largest, is easily accessible from the Adirondack Coast's prevalent boat launches and marinas, and is a popular paddling destination for canoes, SUPs, flat water, and sea kayaks. The region offers a wide range of paddling experiences, from serene flat water escapes to rushing whitewater. 

Paddling near Westport - talk about a scenic ride!

  • Backcountry ponds are ideal for exploration via canoe, kayak or SUP (standup paddleboard). 
  • The region's smaller rivers are navigable with small flat water and whitewater kayaks. 
  • Area attractions offer another great way to paddle - rent a canoe at Fort Ticonderoga and experience history from a water perspective or take a raft ride at the Ausable Chasm.

Paddling is a great way to experience Adirondack wildlife, birding, and to fish. Guides and boat rental services are available throughout the region, let area experts help create a trip that’s right for you!
