There are two concrete ramps here, and the landing is usually crowded on summer weekends and during flounder season. Heading east (right) from the boat ramp will take you toward the ocean along with a fair amount of traffic. Heading west (left) will take you up the creek, and this was the direction my son and I headed. Our timing was not the best as it was low tide when we put in, and we got into some shallow flats. Though we did not get stuck, our paddles hit bottom with each stroke until we finally found the deeper channel. Once we got off the flats it was a pleasant trip. The only wildlife we saw was in the form of shorebirds, but those were abundant. About 3/4 miles from the landing the creek splits, and we took the northerly branch. At another 1/2 mile or so we came upon the ruins of an old oyster processing factory and found a place to get out and explore. This trip was relatively short and probably totaled just over 3 miles. My son was with me, and his patience for kayaking wears out well before mine does.
