Unofficial photos of the Sea Kayaking group of the
Rhode Island Canoe/Kayak Association www.rickaseakayaking.org

Mostly paddled in the Narragansett Bay Area, the 'Best day paddle area in the United States'.

Photos may be viewed two ways, by clicking thumbnail index photos, or by using topographic maps linked to the photos. The maps encompass the area paddled and have clickable buttons to the photos or shaded boxes that link larger detailed maps with buttons.
