Are you interested in kayaking weekly with a guide and other paddlers? Join one of our Kayak Evening Social Paddles and enjoy paddling into a setting sun. It's a great time to get to know other paddlers and have a mini vacation. Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before departure to sign-in, get changed and get onto the water.

What skills do I need to join a Social Paddle?

  • To paddle a solo kayak, paddlers have taken a Beginner Kayak Intro Course or have equivalent paddling experience.
  • If you have a friend with less experience, consider renting a tandem kayak.

Dates and Times

Leisure social paddles run every Thursday and Friday evening beginning in July. Intermediate Social Paddles (faster paced / further distanced) are offered Thursday evenings.
