There will be a basic stroke session before we hit the waterways.

Please post whether you want

1) Kayak 2) Canoe 3) Double Kayak

AND

Whether you want to join us at the pub afterwards for dinner.

    LeeAnn, I have made 4 Tandem Kayaks available for this event. Now people can select a tandem or a single kayak. Great for beginners and those who love the outdoors.

    June 5, 2013

  • Martina

    I'm a beginner, would an intermediate or experienced kayaker mind paddling in a double kayak with me? Would really like to try this.

    May 29, 2013

    • LeeAnn

      Actually - single kayak is far easier to maneuver than a double - I would not suggest a double for beginnners -

      May 29, 2013

    • Martina

      Thanks Leanne. Can you please supply your address as I would like to mail payment ASAP. Also will opt out of pub dinner.
