|Looking north from causeway.|
We researched the causeway last summer and found that due to years of barnacle build-up in the pipes, there is no way any paddler could make it through without scraping or bumping their heads while in a prone position. In other words, I wouldn't recommend trying - sketchy!
Portaging over the causeway is the best bet. Time the tides so they're high, otherwise you'll have 200-300 yards of sludging through thick mud on both sides. While going over, watch for traffic, local residents drive through this stretch quickly to shorten their commutes from the mainland.
