A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?


Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

This year successfully completed the circumnavigation of Kent Island and did some paddling on the bay.

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

I love to be in the outdoors, especially on or in the water.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

Improve my paddling skills while socializing with fellow paddlers.


I have lived in Bethesda for the past 14 years and am now an 'empty nester'. I love being in the outdoors whether sculling, kayaking, golfing (although I'm not real good), sitting at the beach with a good book, etc.

Chuck is a great 'host' who ensures everyone's safety and does some instructing on the side.
