Island Spirit Kayak is located on a barrier beach between Sengekontacket Pond’s 745 acres of rich wildlife paddling and The Nantucket Sound’s calm waters, beaches and the famous Jaws/Jumping Bridge! From our location you can explore the island’s rich wildlife; shellfish beds, Osprey’s and their nests and small island’s inhabited by rare birds ie: Piping Plovers, or you can paddle under the bridge to the ocean for the calm North shore waters, sandy public beaches and inland harbors.
