Waquoit Bay is an enclosed bay that is very shallow in parts. Although the beaches face West and NW, it is best flown in South and SW winds. Its shallow flat water is great for beginners to practice as well as experenced kiters. The winds can be gusty, and typically blow a few mph less than other South facing beaches on the Cape. The road down to the parking lots is very rough and may require either 4WD vehicles or ones with high ground clearance. The two parking lots are small, and can only fit a few cars. Carpooling in the summer is highly encouraged.
There are no official restrictions at Waquoit Bay. Please follow any directions on any signs or other information posted.
Quick crossing of the marked boat channel permitted, but kiting in it or around boats prohibited.
The boat channel extends the entire length of the spit of land with osprey nest out to the last bouy.
DO NOT launch kite near beachgoers.
DO NOT fly kite directly over beachgoers.
Complience with a few simple rules will keep this bay open to all.
