Paddle the Baltimore Inner Harbor
(RSVP's for this event open Tuesday April 16th at 9:00 PM)
We will be on the water at 10:30 AM from Canton Waterfront Park in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Please plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to launch promptly at 10:30 AM. Pull up to the boat ramp, drop off your boat and gear and then park in the lot a couple hundred yards away.
This should be a fun and interesting paddle in the Inner Harbor. We will cross from the park to Fort McHenry and then navigate the edges of the harbor in a clockwise direction for a total of around 6 or 7 miles before returning to the park. The stark urban industrial setting of the Baltimore Harbor is an extremely different and very intersting change from most of the other places we paddle.
Pack a snack for a rest stop on the water and consider joining the group for lunch at Nacho Mamas or one of the other great restaurants in Canton after the paddle. We should be back to the take out around 2:00 PM.
The water in the harbor is 58.5 (04/16) degrees today and this paddle isn't for another 1.5 weeks so I think the water should be warm enough to not require cold water gear. If Mother Nature doesn't cooperate I'll have to change that but I don't think it will be necessary.
There are rental kayaks which include a paddle and PFD available for this paddle at the weekend rate of $50.00. To reserve one just answer the kayak rental questions when you RSVP. The first couple of renters on the waiting list for this paddle will get moved to the attending list.
