False Cape Expedition


Experience the False Cape Expedition hosted by Surf & Adventure Co. Customize your day with surfing, standup paddleboarding, and exploring one of the last remaining undeveloped areas along the Atlantic coast.  See full details below.



False Cape Expedition

The False Cape Expedition will have you cruising through the breathtaking scenery of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge into False Cape State Park — marshes along with the bay to the west, massive natural dunes and the Atlantic to the east.  After reaching our destination, you will experience a day of surfing, standup paddleboarding, and the secluded beaches of False Cape State Park.

False Cape State Park is one of the last remaining undeveloped areas along the Atlantic coast.  As the former home of Native Americans, the historic Wash Woods community and a Coast Guard lifesaving station, False Cape honors the hardy souls who made a living from the sea.  Our False Cape Expedition offers you the chance to truly experience the nature and history of this unique and primitive setting.
