Important Details

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so

 you can be ready to paddle a few minutes before the scheduled start time

It’s free to join with your own kayak or SUP. If you need to rent one from us we are offering a discounted rate of $20. We ask that you make a rental booking at least 8 hours in advance so we know how many kayaks/SUPs to prepare and are able to get on the water on time. When you pick the right rental time slot the discount will be automatically applied.

You do NOT need a reservation to join if you are using your own vessel; you can just show up.

These paddles are led by our staff, but they are not guided trips and you should not join if you need instruction or assistance in order to participate. Please consider taking one of our lessons or joining a tour if you are new to sea kayaking or SUP. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their own safety. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support as you paddle. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.

A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Facebook page.
