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.

I have been kayaking intermittently for about 10 years, usually as part of a cruise tour. Prior to that, I was an avid whitewater rafter but decided to enjoy the rivers in a less dangerous way. For about 4 years, I've done flatwater.

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.

Necky, Manitou (13 ft); Wilderness Systems Tarpon sit on top (14 ft); Necky Looksha (12 ft)

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?

Exercise, relaxation, get outdoors, socialization

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?

All of the above but especially to paddle safely with others.


CKA is a great group of kayaking enthusiasts led by our Fearless Leader, Chuck, who is all you could possibly want in a leader and friend. Our trips are fun with appropriate attention to safety. I am so grateful for the group.--Julie (Figment)

What Julie is saying about this Meetup Group

This is the gift that just keeps giving. I am so grateful. Thank you Chuck and all of the outstanding assistant organizers. Every time I think the experiences we are having together cannot get better, they do!!! Thank you so much for all you do. More important, thank you for the caring spirit of the organizers! Words cannot express how much the quality of our lives (physically and mentally) has improved through our association.
