Kayaking Part II: Return to the Canals

The first kayaking tour was so much fun we decided to do it again!

Riverside Kayak Connection will be guiding us on another tour of the Eastside canals.  The tour will cost $41 per person.  I need to give RKC a final head count on Thursday, August 1st, so I'll shut down the RVSPs at 9 pm on July 31st.  After that, refunds will not be available.

RKC will provide all the equipment.  If you do RSVP yes, please give them a call because they need to get your height and weight info so they'll bring the right equipment.  RKC can be reached at[masked]-2925.

The tour lasts about two hours.  Afterwards, we'll have a BYOB picnic with delicious food and drinks!

    Great tour, thanks to Melissa and RKC! In case anyone else is interested in AMC's new Detroit-based drama "Low Winter Sun": just noticed that part of pilot was filmed on Klenk Island, which I believe we paddled past (along with Harbor Island) - http://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/4807/an_afternoon_on_detroit_s_klenk_island_filming_amc_s_new_cop_show#.UgA2ctJgQoO

    Loved this tour! Great tour mates, beautiful weather and I can't say enough about the staff at Riverside Kayak Connection. They *really* know and love the city. Loved this so much I'm thinking of going again in a couple of weeks. Thanks, Melissa, for organizing this one. ♥♥♥

    I loved it--a way of seeing Detroit that was completely unique and interesting. Weather was perfect, kayak staff were helpful and informative. Kayaks and equipment were very nice.

      Melissa, you are doing a terrific job with this event. Please call me when you hae a free minute (not urgent): (C)[masked]

      Thanks Steve! I sent you a message about calling. Please let me know what you think.

    Hello! So sad to see that this is full already. I just joined the waitlist with one guest. Do you think there's any possibility of this opening up at all? Sounds so fun.

    • Jim

      I did this last month. Was on the waiting list and a few spots opened up. The unfortunate thing about some members is they RSVP, then never show. If you want a spot w/o going thru meetup, call RKC directly and reserve some kayaks. This event is a blast.

      Thanks for your advice, Jim! I'll call RKC and see what they can do. Sounds too good to miss.

    Hi guys, I don't know anyone yet but this trip looked like too cool and like too much fun to pass up. I look forward to meeting you all there if not sooner.

  • Steven S.

    I just called RKC to give them my info. To keep things simple, I'll rent from them rather than lug mine.
