Two Hour Thursday

Geist Reservoir

Biweekly Paddle

Level: Easy - Beginner or Intermediate or Advanced (multiple groups).

MEET AT 6:00pm and we will LAUNCH at 6:30pm.

Kayak or SUP! Paddling isn't just for the weekends!

This event is a part of our weekly paddling series.

From Spring until Fall, every other Thursday, we meet for an evening of fun, social and/or fitness paddling. On this Thursday, we'll be out on Geist Reservoir, while on the alternating Tuesdays, we'll be out on Eagle Creek Reservoir. This event's level is great for families, beginners and the seasoned paddler. We usually have a large turnout and possibly split into smaller groups, focusing on beginners, fitness, or those just out for a steady paddling pace.

We meet at Geist Park on Florida Road on Indy's Northeast side, every other Thursday evening at 6:00pm, launch at 6:30pm and plan to be off the water by 8:30pm. We sometimes go out to dinner as a group afterward. There is no charge for parking or launching, yet get there early as the parking lot does fill up quickly.

Suggested items to bring: Kayak or SUP, paddle, PFD, wide brimmed hat, sun block, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, large sponge, bilge pump or container to bail out water, water, snacks, weather radio, towel, change of clothes, water shoes, paddling gloves, rain gear, bug spray, safety whistle, drybags, Ziplock bags, camera, binoculars, rope, headlamp or flashlight, a sense of adventure, and a good dose of humor.

For clothing try to use something other than cotton, especially if the weather is cool. Polypropylene or polyester are good choices since neither holds water and they wick moisture away from you.

RENTALS: For Kayak or SUP rental reservations with Freedom Kayak Adventures, call[masked]. Fee is $25 for a single-seat kayak and $35 for a tandem kayak for this event.

Event hosts reserve the right to cancel due to inclement weather. Any cancellation or adjustment to the schedule will be posted in this event's message thread.
