Next Meetup

Adventure kayak seekers desired.
Seeking an international destination for next year September? This is an ALL inclusive kayak retreat for a week. Located on the smaller island of Poros, about an hour (by ferry) SW of Athens, Greece. This will be my third time to this fabulous area - and I am inviting others to join in what is a small group experience . I would need a reply by those interested before the end of the month - as there are limited spaces available. I would be more than happy to provide answers to questions you may have about this adventure. Either PM me via Facebook, or send me an email - [masked]. From there, I can provide you my phone number and we can speak. This would be a novice kayaker experience. There are no tides, usually less than 1 foot waves - warm, clear blue salt water. What's included: all kayak related items + kayak (14 foot sea yaks). All meals. Townhouse-like accommodations. Historical day trips to surrounding islands by ferry, nightly entertainment. What is not included - how you get to Poros. (airfare/taxi). But I am here to assist you in making this a pain free easy destination. All you need is the time and a passport - and the desire to travel !!

    What we're about

    For kayakers in and around the Fox Valley area .

    Please ensure you read our PFD and alcohol policy prior to attending any event. PFD's will be worn, no alcohol consumption for all paddles will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    If you are looking to get out and meet others that share your passion for kayaking (and canoeing), join Fox Valley Yakkers. Together we can explore the Fox Valley area waterways. Everyone is welcome to join, no matter how much experience you have. So if you have a kayak sitting around, grab it, load it and lets start having fun. If you have any questions or concerns, call or email the leadership team. We are happy to meet new people that share our passion. Our goal is to bring other kayakers together. Without having to travel too far, we have plenty of places to paddle. All meetup ideas are considered and voted on by our members.

    With that, WELCOME to our "family". Just remember...life is short...paddle hard!

    **Paddles will be assigned a "level" or "rating" so members can better gauge if they want to participate or not. The labels are estimates as to how the paddles will go. The following labels will be used**

    Beginner = paddles under 10 miles, no obstacles anticipated, current favorable, water temperatures favorable

    Intermediate = paddles 10+ miles, possible obstacles or stronger currents. Water temps may be low if early season date.

    Advanced = paddles 10+ miles, &/or challenging currents or conditions(weather,water temps,ets.). May also include multiple day trips with camping.
