What we're about

Paddlers in the MD/DC/PA/VA/WVA area are blessed with wonderful kayaking opportunities with a number of great paddling groups. Is there room for one more? We think so! Wicked Fun Kayakers isn't interested in being the biggest or best paddling group in the area - we just want to have fun! Our goal is to create smaller, focused paddles that match different kayaking interests. Are you a beginner, recreational, photographer, or naturalist paddler that prefers a slower pace, quieter waters, and shorter distances? We're planning safe, organized (but not regimented) paddles just for you called Laid Back Paddles or Slow Mo Paddles! Do you prefer faster/longer/more challenging paddles with people of similar skill levels? We call those our Adventurous Paddles. Weekend trips? Camping? Side trips to wineries, restaurants or festivals? We're in!

All trips are organized by volunteers who are experienced kayakers but not professionals. We will be happy to show you basic skills that work for us, but we are not instructors and do not give formal lessons. New members should already know basic paddling skills, how to wet-exit, and be responsible for their own safety. You must have your own kayak (no inflatables), paddle, PFD, and basic safety equipment. Additional safety equipment may be required for certain paddles.

• Important to know
ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR A PFD AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL SAFETY

You must have your own equipment and kayak for this paddle. The Organizers and Event Hosts of Wicked Fun Kayakers look out for our paddlers, but we are not trained experts in rescuing paddlers. All trips are organized by volunteers who are experienced kayakers but not professionals or qualified rescue experts. You are responsible for your own personal safety.
