Let's meet for a moonlit social paddle. We'll head out to the ocean for a bit, as conditions allow, and then back in to the harbor.
***NOTE: Feel free to join for just 1/2 of the paddle!
► MODERATE PACED OCEAN LOOP: Ocean half will be around 5.5 miles at a moderate-fast pace (please be able to paddle ~3mph, I recommend a longer kayak of around 14'+ to be able to keep this pace or- feel free to hang behind us at your own pace- contact me with questions!). Launch from your favorite spot and meet on the water at Coast Guard Beach, floating and ready to go at 4:00pm.
Anticipated route: out to the bell buoy, north to the Balboa Pier and back.
► SLOWER PACED HARBOR LOOP: The Harbor loop will be half will approx 2.5 miles, at a slow/beginner/smaller kayak friendly pace. If you want to join for Harbor only, meet on the water at Coast Guard Beach, floating and ready to go at 6:00 pm, and we'll swing by for you on the way back!!
Anticipated route: loop around Balboa island.
