Welcome to the Southeast Coast Saltwater Paddling Trail

southeast coast saltwater paddling trail mapThe Southeast Coast Saltwater Paddling Trail (SECT) connects the Chesapeake Bay and the Georgia-Florida border. For over 800 miles, the SECT hugs the coastal waters of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, providing a unique opportunity for paddlers to experience an unbroken trail through four states in the tidal marshes and rivers of the southern USA.

For the truly adventurous paddlers, the SECT provides a connection between two other well-known regional trails. The northern terminus connects with the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and the southern terminus connects with the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail.

If you have any great adventures on the SECT (short or long trips!), please let us know in the contact form so we can highlight your trip on the blog!
