    Duration: This is approximately a 2hr paddle. We will arrive back to our beach launch to light refreshments and some cool tunes! Feel free to bring your choice of beverage & snack to share :)

    Cost: Normally $65, but for our Meetupers, we are offering it for $35 per person with your choice of a single or tandem kayak complete with seatbacks, life vests and paddles. We will also provide headlamps/or lights for the kayak to make sure you're visible on the water :)
