North Out of Fir Landing

Route Description:

This is the northernmost public launch site on Chincoteague Island and thus offers the best access to the most serene waters in the area. The launch facility is very small and parking is very limited. As you enter the water, cross the narrow channel and take a Left, and head North. As you exit the narrow creek, stay toward your left and explore the salt marshes along the shoreline of Chincoteague Island. Intermediate and Advanced paddlers can head across Assateague Bay to Assateague Island. However, Beginner paddlers should stay close to Chincoteague Island in order to avoid getting turned around or lost. Return to the boat ramp by retracing your path, and stay vigilant for powerboat traffic.
