View Full Version : Kayaking

06-12-2006, 05:37 PM
I am looking for some - not offshore ocean - kayaking that Rick & I, "The Two Reprobates", can do to get to caches on islands, reachable by water only, or on or near the shore, reachable by either land or water. A day kayaking, with a find or two to log, is hard to beat!! Our area of concentration is Southern Maine & the New Hampshire Seacoast.

Dear Dave,

These are a bit north for a day's trip. How do you search for them?


06-12-2006, 06:28 PM
I would do a search for caches with a 5 rating as it takes special equipment to reach the cache and a canoe or kayak would be considered special equipment. At least that would be how I would go about it. Maybe some others have different thoughts as to how to do the search.

I'm a premium member, but I have no clue as to how to search by Difficulty Level or Icon.

I don't think you can do a search by Difficulty Level without running a query can you?

06-13-2006, 12:26 PM
That is correct, you have to run a pocket query and also even maybe a filter using GSAK.

Here is a quick GSAK filter I ran. This is a list of possible kayak caches within 60 miles of Portsmouth, NH. I havenít looked at the descriptions of the caches, but the names imply that many may require a boat to reach.

GCKM3Q Ca$h Cache 2.2 NE
GCPHDB Lone Pine 10.4 N
GCJNVW Log Cabbin Isle 18.9 W
GCGDN3 Bo's Island 26.1 NE
GCV727 Beach Island Cache 31.2 S
GCV71X Ipswich River Cache 31.8 S
GCK8QX Raphus Cucullatus 31.8 W
GC6CD5 Piscatequog Paddle 38.6 W
GC70C2 of paddles and ropeswings 47 W
GCPQXW The Westford River 47.4 SW
GCJJNE Stonedam Island 51.2 NW
GC7910 A Berry Good Island 52.5 N
GCH7VX Barnes Brook Cache 53.3 N
GCJY07 Bearcamp Canoe Cache 59.4 NW

Don't forget:
Alison's Island Cache

This is just a few hundred feet from land and you could swim to it if you wanted to, but there are another 4 or more miles of little islands to explore.

Well worth the trip!

Barnes Brook is not a kayak trip, but it sure is a great cache.

There are few in what I would call Central Maine area (Bangor, Brewer, Orrington, Bucksport) along with lots more (Old Town, Orono, Dedham, DeerIsle, Stonington, Ellsworth and more). This would make a sweet visit for you. 04474 - an island Plus an Audoborn Society Trail nearby as well as a few others. 04416 - Another island one plus several more. These are all within about a 40 mile radius more or less. Thank you for asking and if you visit our area - please let us know. Also there is a kayaking event coming up - posted on this site.
