Good evening folks,

Looking to gather more information on paddling Price William Sound. Best part of the year, travel options, lodging on both ends, any info.

I plan on contacting Ryan Collins at paddlers' realm.

I have put in at the Manville Dam many times and never had a problem at the parking lot. If your concern is theft, the put-ins along the Blackstone are no worse than any of the others around.

ExploreRI is great resource - the water trail maps are particularly good, and there are a couple for the Blackstone.The big rivers in RI are the Blackstone, the Pawtuxet, the Wood and the Pawcatuck. There are also smaller, less paddled rivers like the Ten Mile and the Woonasquatucket River. There aren't that many good size lakes in RI, and the ones there are tend to be in western RI. I'm not all that familiar with the East Bay. You can't paddle on the Woonsocket Reservoir (they won't even let you walk around it). Reservoirs are generally off limits for paddling.

Unfortunately, the flatwater season is over, but you should definitely check out the flatwater calendar in the spring. There are trips on all these rivers and more. The Blackstone Valley Paddle Club would also be a good option. They paddle every Tuesday night from June through August on a different section of the Blackstone River. The trips are short, and there are a lot of leaders, so it is probably a good place to start with kids.

Hope to see you in the spring.

Hi Folks,

I'm considering leading one or more sea kayak navigation workshops this winter.  If folks are interested, please let me know - the material could range from introductory to advanced depending on the needs and interest of the group.  Sessions would likely take place on a Saturday afternoon in the vicinity of South Kingstown.

Thank you for your information, that was extremely helpful. I don't live far from there but have goings on in Manville at times and it doesn't seem like the nicest area. People don't speak well of it, is it OK to leave your car parked right there?

I know to watch for the dams but despite kayaking for years, I only did it in the Sakonnet River and now the kids are old enough we can star to explore these areas.

I went to scope it out on Friday because the last few weeks I have been looking on the exploreri website for the blue ways and saw some interesting potential destinations. That said northern RI doesn't have as much going for it as Western or Southern RI. I'll be looking out for potential group paddles.

Another question since I have your attention, is it legal to paddle in the various reservoirs like Woonsocket or Cumberland reservoirs?
