What we're about

Northeast Ohio presents paddling enthusiasts with a huge array of options. Our community includes those who want to canoe, sea kayak, white water kayak, or paddle board. Our meetup group is a network of organizations that provide introductory instruction, outfitters that provide equipment, along with clubs and groups that organize trips and events. We are situated with Lake Erie, local rivers and lakes, along with some of the country’s best white water within driving distance.

The purpose of this meetup group is to provide a means for paddlers of all types and skill levels to find local paddling opportunities. We are a cooperating network of local, independent organizations sharing the same meetup site. Please understand that because this website is shared, some organizations do NOT monitor feedback on this site. If interested in an event, it is always prudent, and most often necessary to contact each event host directly. Bottom line, RSVPing on this meetup site is usually NOT sufficient. Please contact each event host directly.

All activities are paddle at your own risk.
