Sunset - Half Moon paddle on Patcong Creek this Saturday (Sept 14th). Launch time 6 PM. Tide will be full about launch time. We can paddle toward the bay and explore a few coves down creek, or head up creek toward Bargaintown Lake & dam.
Patcong Creek is a very passive tidal creek. This is a good paddle for all skill levels and boat types. PFDs and waterproof flash lights required. We have waterproof locator/flash lights available for purchase at the shop for those who need them ($12).
Rentals are available for this paddle - including boat, paddle, PFD, locator/flashlight. Singles $30, Doubles $35. Prior reservations required.
Note to renters: This is a very easy paddle & we encourage all to enjoy a safe/first night paddle, however, this should not be your first time kayaking - you should be skilled at effective boat control before venturing out at night - even in these protected conditions.
Distance of paddle: max 5 miles round trip. Duration of paddle about 2-3 hours. Launch from the boat ramp or a floating dock at our location.
Will make a go - no go decision on this trip at 5PM Saturday. Will try to post weather update on this site at that time. Shop number is[masked], my cell is[masked] if you wish to call at/after that time for trip status.
