About Shelter Island
Located on the east end of Long Island,
Shelter Island boasts more than 20
miles of sandy shoreline and many
inlets, creeks and put-in spots. Shelter
Island is one of the jewels of the
northeast when it comes to paddling.
The height of Shelter Island's beauty comes during the summer months when
the greenery is at its fullest and the water is teeming with life. However, spring
and early autumn feature calmer waters due to less recreational boat traffic.
Paddlers have been known to test the chilly waters during those rare milder days
in the winter.
