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.

As I am fairly new to kayaking, I have not had a lot of trips to tell about. My first kayaking experience was many years ago in Crystal River, Florida. That is where the Manatees go in the winter. My son and I kayaked on a tandem ocean kayak. I have gone kayaking on Seneca Creek, in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Gulf of Helsinki.

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.

Initially, I will have to rent or borrow a kayak.

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 find kayaking relaxing and I enjoy being on the water. It is also nice to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet. Keeping fit is another benefit.

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?

My interest in joining the group is to keep active, meet new friends and have some fun.


Hello, my name is Linda. I just learned about and saw your group. I am a beginner but really enjoy paddling and being near the water.
