In fact, some claim that standup paddleboarding is the world’s fastest growing water sport, offering a challenging workout from beginners to those who are more advanced.

When you think of Cape Cod, you probably have visions of the ocean and its shoreline.  However, the Cape also boasts a cache of freshwater alternatives.  These are called kettle ponds, in fact Wellfleet and Truro have about 20 of them just waiting to be explored.  Many of them now operate as area swimming beaches, but some of them are so remote they offer visitors a tranquil place to escape the crowds and return to nature.

The history of kettle ponds is quite remarkable.  They were formed when glacier ice melted, resulting in huge holes that then filled up with fresh water.  This happened more than 15,000 years ago, and the “kettles” are still there.  Unlike the ocean, most of the kettle ponds don’t have a beach and you have to trudge through the

If you’re searching for a truly unique destination, consider taking a trip out to Long Pond.  Known as Cape Cod’s largest pond, Long Pond is located on the Lower Cape at the border of Brewster and Harwich and stretches more than 700 acres.  This freshwater kettle pond offers crystal clear water and a sandy bottom.  The deepest part of Long Pond is 66 feet, with an average water depth of around 23 feet.

Swimming is extremely popular in the area, with a lifeguard stationed at Long Pond between around July 4 to Labor Day, every day of the week during the morning and afternoon hours.  If you’re looking instead for some outdoor recreation that takes in some of the scenery, there is the Long Pond Circular Bicycle Route.  The route stretches about 13 miles,

While the Cape Cod ocean beaches receive top billing, the Cape is also blessed with a 200+ freshwater "kettle" ponds scattered throughout the various communities.  A dip in the cool, clear waters of a cherished pond is a favorite Cape Cod memory for residents and visitors alike.  Henry David Thoreau famously visited the Wellfleet ponds in the mid-1800s, later remarking on them in "Cape Cod."   

While the National Seashore identifies 20 official ponds scattered throughout the beach forests of Wellfleet and Truro, ponds are also an appealing part of the landscape in communities such as Brewster, Harwich, and Eastham.  These unique kettles were formed as a product of the Ice Age some 15,000 years ago.  As the glacier ice melted, it left behind massive

While most of us have pulled our kayaks off the beaches and landings of Cape Cod, I did see a lone kayaker navigating out in Wellfleet Harbor last Friday.  Watching this solo paddler get in an early December workout was truly inspirational to say the least!

One of the best ways to experience the raw, natural beauty of the Cape is by kayak.  Kayaking not only gives you access to areas that may be difficult to reach on foot but also provides a great workout while beating the heat.  Wellfleet has an abundance of options whether you're looking for a relaxing paddle or a grand exploration.  Here are a few local favorites:

Gull Pond is the only Wellfleet pond with boat rentals and as Wellfleet's largest pond, provides lots of room for
