Youth Embarks on Wampanoag Passage Canoe Trip

Wicked Local Scituate: Setting out on his canoe from the Driftway in Scituate, Massachusetts, 22-year-old Nik Tyack of Hanover began his 4-day voyage to complete the Wampanoag Passage on Thursday, June 9.

Joining Nik on the first leg of his 72-mile journey they all arrived to celebrate his paddling the historic Wampanoag Canoe Passage.

This will be the third and last year Tyack will do the trip, which he has done to raise money and awareness for the North & South Rivers Watershed Association. The 72-mile passage connects the North and Taunton Rivers and Massachusetts and Narragansett Bays.

“I had mentioned wanting to do something as a fundraiser for them and (NSRWA Executive Director Samantha Woods) had the idea to do the Wampanoag Passage,” said Tyack. “And I love to boat and kayak and canoe. I grew up on the mouth of the Third Herring Brook in Hanover and so it sounded like a fun event to do.”
