Paddling Long Island is a new guidebook that covers routes and destinations across the whole of Long Island and New York City.
The book’s guidance and language cover wide-ranging skill levels, from novice to expert. Author Kevin Stiegelmaier combines intimate knowledge of the area’s waterways with natural and social histories, humorous stories, personal anecdotes, and black-and-white photographs.
Also included are practical considerations, such as best times to paddle the 50 harbor, inlet, bay, and river routes. Stiegelmaier also alerts readers to each paddle’s difficulty level and estimated length; and suggests side trips, optional trip extensions, and alternate routes depending on weather conditions. Easy-to-follow maps, complete with GPS coordinates and driving directions, add to the value.
Also included is contact information on local paddling clubs, outfitters, and Internet links. A final extensive section on personal safety, boat and equipment preparedness, and related topics makes this book a valuable reference for all paddlers.
