One of the most enjoyable ways to experience the Bay is via kayak. In the upper Bay, there aren't generally large waves, so paddling around to explore the Hurricane Barrier, the rivers where WaterFire takes place, and the little marinas around the Hot Club are all easily accomplished even by novice kayakers. Unfortunately, unless you happen to bring your own kayak along, you'll be denied the pleasure; virtually all the kayak rental firms are further south and getting back to the capitol city would be quite a lengthy paddle. I'm providing a link to the Rhode Island Tourism site which lists numerous rental agencies. See you on the water!
