Surfing, kayaking, parasailing, diving… The Ocean State offers big opportunities to get active on the water. Named a National Geographic Best Adventure Destination, Rhode Island is a paddler’s dream. Our endless coastline, with 1500 miles of rivers and mapped blueways, offers exploration opportunities and spectacular scenery for kayakers and canoers in every region of the state. We've also got some of the best spots in New England for surfing. And if you like to scuba dive, you'll find the area's most accessible U-Boat, off the coast of Block Island.
