Please confirm that you are an experienced, energetic paddler who can paddle at about 3.7 mph for a couple of hours. If you are not, you can join us on walks, but not on kayaking trips.

I'm a very young 62 and have gone out x 2 w Venice Newcomers (rentals) since moving here w no problems. Been paddling since in my 20's all over US and Canada.

How many miles can you comfortably paddle? You need to be able to paddle 7-8 miles at a good speed with only one short break, in order to paddle with us. Sometimes, we are not able to get out of our boats for that break.

Couple hours and how ever many miles. Would also like to find folks who want to travel, paddle and camp out.

Do you plan to walk with us? If so, will you bring your dog?

Maybe. My 16 lb. Westie has been sitting on the front of a kayak (I have a little junior boat not stable enough for open sea water) since he was 3 lbs.---he's got his own gear.

Have you read and do you agree to the Waiver of Liability ? You need to answer that you have read the waiver and do agree with it.


Please read. No need to respond. No guests on paddles ever. People who are "no shows" twice will be automatically dropped from the group. You can change your "YES" RSVP to "NO" any time before the paddle, but "no shows" are not welcome in the group.

Laura Butler. Recent to Venice. Lots of white water+ kayaking experience but I ONLY HAVE A JR SIZE KAYAK. Would have to RENT to join-in. Plan to get one (5/14) but I'm small and I need to investigate the "right one" for size +local water.
