I love water.

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 kayaked with rentals on a wide variety of waters- from Adirondack lakes to a Bioreserve in Quintana Roos, Mexico. I have taken a beginning whitewater class on the Potomac- fun but probably not what I want to do all the time.

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.

Elie Strait 120 and a P & H Capella 160. Impex Force Cat 3

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 just love to be out on the water in any way, shape or form. I read Kimmie's profile where she says she was a mermaid in another life- I think that's me also. Kayaking just really suits me.

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 looking for a little bit of all of the above. I want to learn from others and find new spots to enjoy. I like socializing- but kayaking is number 1!
