Please answer each question. How many miles do you prefer to paddle? How many hours do you like to paddle? Can you get back into your boat unassisted, if you flip, & do you carry the gear required to do that & do you practice doing that?

I enjoy outings of 4 hours or so with a range of 6-10 miles.

Are you an experienced and energetic kayaker who can paddle for an hour at a good clip (3.5 mph) without taking a break? This is required for you to paddle with us, although you can join in order to just go on walks with us.

Experienced and energetic!

Do you plan to bring a dog on our walks? You are VERY welcome to walk with us without a dog. And you can bring guests on walks (but not on paddles).

Unfortunately, my Sam, that we rescued from a shelter in FL, is not very happy with other dogs. Small ones are fine. Sam was abused and I fear he was attacked by other dogs which makes him edgy and aggressive in the company of other dogs.

You must read the Accident Waiver of Liability that is on the Home Page before completing your request to join this group. Have you read the Accident Waiver and Release of Liability? Do you agree to it ?

I've read and agree.

Have you practiced doing a T-recovery to help others get back into their kayak after capsizing?
