Moonlit Ocean and Harbor Paddle

Let's meet for a moonlit social paddle.

Launch from your favorite spot and meet on the water at Coast Guard Beach, floating and ready to go at 5:45pm.
We'll paddle for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, probably heading out to the ocean for a bit, as conditions allow, and then back in to the harbor.

Anticipated route:
Approximately 6 1/2 miles - hugging the coast down to the beginning of Crystal Cove Beach and straight back, then a loop around Balboa Island.  Those who wish to cut it shorter can stop at CGB on the way back in.  Route subject to change according to the whims of the group :D
Tacos after?  Highly likely!!  I suggest: Taco Mesa Costa Mesa 647 W. 19th Street

***NOTE:  Feel free to join for just 1/2 of the paddle!  Ocean half will likely be a little faster pace, harbor half a little slower.  If you want to join for Harbor only, be ready to go at CGB by 6:30 and we'll swing by for you on the way back!!

Please RSVP - Subject to cancel/change.


For the Paddle:

• BYO Boat. Sorry, no rentals.

• Don't forget to dress in warm/windproof layers,

• Harbor Patrol requires you carry a headlamp or flashlight.

• get there at least 30-60 minutes early to park and unload

☼ Sunset: Oct 19,[masked]:14 PM
♥  Moonrise: Oct 19,[masked]:48 PM

We are kayak buddies, not guides.  Be responsible for your own safety. See you there!

    I'm trying to decide. I would really like to go on the first leg, but not sure if I can keep up. Any suggestions on keeping warm?

      It shouldn't be too cold once you get moving. As always, dress in layers you can shed, avoid cotton, and make sure it can get wet in case you go in.
