Hi, my name is Carol Collins. I have been kayaking for 4 years and just love it. I am looking for fun, easy going people to paddle with.

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 paddling for 4 years. I have taken stroke and rescue classes. My longest paddle was circumnavigating Kent Island in one day. I am involved with the Chesapeake Paddlers Association.

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.

Wilderness Tempest 165

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 little bit of all the above. I just love getting out on the water and paddling.

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?

I am always looking to improve my skills and want the company of like minded paddlers. It is more fun to paddle with others!
