What we're about

River to Sea is Capital City Kayak's Official Calendar.

We use this page for scheduling both paid and free events. Want to work with both River and Coastal instructors? We got ya covered.

We foster a community of paddlers who work as a team when on the water, and relaxing afterwards. Looking for training, friends, and a home on the water? You found it!

We can provide group and private lessons as well. Just ask!

Aphorisms:

"Will roll for beer."

"It's always bigger than it looks."

"Hope is not an effective survival strategy."

And the always popular "Stash the body, split the gear!"

Paddle Eastport Maine

Needs a location

We are headed to Eastport Maine. This is a Choose Your Own Adventure -Kayak Campers Club Event. No classes from CCK, just peer paddling, whale watching, seal spying, deck drinking, relaxing, breathing...beer...

This is a Bucket List type trip. I'll post some pics from last year to give you a feeling for it. You will not regret this trip. I promise.

Details: It's a two day drive. We expect to arrive Sunday the 29th. We are in Site 10B, Seaview Campground. I highly recommend getting reservations ASAP. The campground offers cabins, tent sites, etc. The bathrooms are quite clean and nice, heat/AC. You may also look for hotel or Airbnb space.

Eastport is charming as heck. I love poking around the art stores, etc.

I'll be participating in a Sea Cliff Kayak training during the first week (advanced, BC 5* stuff). Sea Cliff also offers 4* training the following week. When we aren't in class we'll be organizing day trips. But no pressure, do whatever you want.

Bring your passport if you are interested in paddling in Canada, just across the bay from our campground. I'd love to organize a trip where we land and register, get our passports stamped, and poke around.

Join the waiting list and Message me if you want to join in! FYI, facebook messenger works best to find me quickly.
