Thank you for your interest in joining DeLand Paddles. This group is intended for people of all ages 14 and up who enjoy the outdoors and are interested in paddling trips, river camping, short sunrise paddles, kayak fishing, and making new friends. All trips will have suggested skill levels necessary to attend from beginner to expert. Please do not attend trips beyond your capabilities and skill level, but don't be afraid to push yourself and try something new. If you do have any difficulty, please do not hesitate to ask for help from the organizer or other more experienced members. As a group we should be there to help each other, share our skills, ideas, support and encourage each other to become better paddlers, and most of all have fun. Most paddle trips will be located in DeLand and surrounding areas with occasional trips further away. Canoes, paddle boards, and kayaks are welcome. A limited amount of kayaks and canoes will be available to rent on most trips, details will be posted within the event page. There is no cost to join this group. All minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. No illegal drugs allowed. Smoking is highly discouraged, but if you have to please do so away from the group. Please be respectful of others and the environment. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my passion for nature, the outdoors, and paddling our beautiful waterways.
