Paddle the Baltimore Inner Harbor
(RSVP's for this event open Monday May 27th at 9:00 PM)
The actual attendance limit for this paddle is 30 paddlers. 6 spots have been set aside for people who will be renting kayaks. If you are a renter on the waiting list I will move you to the attending list. Those spots not filled by renters 24 hours before the paddle will be filled with members on the waiting list who have paid the voluntary dues. Everyone has the same chance to sign up for the first 24 slots.
We did this paddle back in April but I've had several requests to repeat it from people who couldn't make that trip. Thanks to the cooler spring the water quality in the Inner Harbor should still be good so let's go one more time before it gets not so good. This is perhaps the most unique and interesting paddle we do.
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.
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.
