Our website has now been updated with our 2021 program offerings for this season. Even though we are closed for the winter season we are looking forward to seeing you the beginning of June 2021. Thanks to everyone who came down to paddle, sharing and spreading the joy of our paddling community. We wish you all health, peace, and increased joy over the winter.
For those paddling their own boats during the off-season, be sure to paddle with someone in another boat for rescues, dress for immersion (drysuit), don’t paddle after sunset, waterproof your cell phone, and watch your hourly weather forecasts, radar, & especially winds with great care at this time of year. Stay safe everyone.
