Kayak Launch Sites

List of Kayak Launch Sites on Long Island.

Some are great for fishing.  Some are great for touring.  We rate them for you.

If you have a site you love, email it to us so we can check it out.

If we want to keep launching sites open or get more sites open we have to use them.

Towns don't close things that bring in money and encourage things that get thier parks used.
