What we're about

River to Sea is Capital City Kayak's Meetup page. 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!


"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!"
