Details

Paddlers should meet the Thorncrest Outfitters shuttle at the end of the planned route as per the schedule found below. The shuttle then transports paddlers and gear to the beginning of their route. Paddlers will finish their trip at their own vehicle. Boats can be left on shore at this point but paddles, PFDs and safety kit must be returned to Thorncrest Outfitters Southampton location.

Thorncrest Outfitters shuttle operates on a 10 minute window meaning the shuttle will arrive at the meeting point anytime from the time listed to 10 minutes after that time. Please be on time!

The shuttle will only wait 10 minutes at a meeting point for late arrivals. After that, we must move on as others are waiting. Contact Thorncrest Outfitters to rebook your shuttle.

ALL SHUTTLES MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE!
