Whenever you are kayaking or canoeing, you are on the water and your heart is racing, and it’s your adventure. If you have seen people paddle around the Annapolis Harbor, you know they must be extra careful around the larger motorboats. Fortunately, there are quieter waterways in Arundel County that are much friendlier for kayaks and canoes.
Visitors enjoy pretty views of the scenic Magothy River here at Ferry Point. The Atlantic Marina offers a family-friendly environment. Lined by trees, this stretch of the Magothy is calm because of the absence of boat and wind wake, so canoeing and kayaking are peaceful experiences. Rentals are not available, so bring your own vessel here.
Offering perhaps the best canoeing and kayaking in Annapolis, the park awaits paddling enthusiasts of all sizes. Recently renovated, this scenic waterfront park on 12 acres is managed and maintained by the Annapolis Maritime Museum. The water views are scenic, and the boat launch is available to the public. The water here is a playground for kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards that can be rented by the hour. Watch out for big crowds during national holiday weekends. For example, you may be right next to other boats during the July 4th Paddle.
Part 2 will cover Quiet Waters Park, Truxtun Park, and Other Paddling Spots.
