This Paddling Group was created for New England Seacoast based kayakers, canoeists, rafters, or anyone interested in paddling to get together to paddle as well as to share paddling related information. Trips and events will take place mostly near or along the Seacoasts of MA, NH & ME but are not limited to these areas. Inland lakes and river paddling trips and events are welcome to be posted here. Inland lakes and river trips and events will occur more often in the spring and fall months.
All trips or events with this group will by default use the Common Adventure Model. For more info on CAM see the link below or go to the Message Board. Please read the "Message Board" for other impotant information as well as "About Us" for useful safety information and great paddling locations.
