Kayaking in Georgetown!

Update:

Hello ladies and gents,

I have spoken to the folks at the boathouse and we are good to go. Things to keep in mind:

1. Please come early. The boats will still be provided on a first come, first serve basis. This means that there may be a slight wait for those that don't arrive on time.

2. We will meet and greet between 12-12:30pm. If you plan to get started right away, feel free to check in and have fun. My number is[masked] in case you need to reach me.

3. There will not be any lessons provided on site unless you have signed up for it online. If you need a general guide, youtube is the best guide there is. Videos like this are helpful.

The weather on 6/7 is predicted to have a high of 80/low of 64.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Summer's right around the corner and what better way to welcome it by kayaking with friends old and new. If you're new to the area or have been here for a while, don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to enjoy our city from a fresh perspective.


Key Bridge Boathouse offers several options:


1. Kayak (Single at $15/hr or Double at $20/hr)

2. Canoe $25/hr

3. Stand Up Paddleboard $20/hr


Here is the boathouse's website: http://www.boatingindc.com/

Metro and Parking


From Rosslyn Metro (¾ mile): walk across Key Bridge and take the stairs on either side down to the canal. There are footbridges across the canal that lead to stairs on Water St. Walk back toward the bridge and its located directly below Key Bridge.


From Foggy Bottom Metro (1 mile): From the rotary, walk West on K street toward the waterfront. If you follow the waterfront park, its located just on the other side of Key Bridge.


Parking is available, but is limited. Arrive early if you do plan on driving.

    Sadly, I cannot make it to this kayaking as I originally intended due to a scheduling conflict. Is there any other scheduled kayaking event in the future?

    I saw this on Groupon. If you're going with a group, this is a great deal: http://www.groupon.com/deals/key-bridge-boathouse-3

      I don't think it's valid on weekends

  • Ying

    Thanks for the great arrangement! I will have an appointment on the same day in the morning. It won't finish until 11:45. It's kind of hard for me to arrive at Georgetown around 12:00. Is there any possibility that I can catch up with you guys maybe 12:30? I really don't want to miss this event!!

    Best Wishes,

    Ying

    • Dan

      Hey ying, you could definitely meetup with us at 1230.
