Its not always convenient to go out kayaking or paddle boarding when you want and have company, especially if you work early or late. This group will cater to all.
We will have early morning events, evening events, and some night "glow" events also. Newport beach is one of the largest non commercial harbors in the US with lots of secrets to explore. We will take different routes on our meetups and explore them all. Most events will be about 2 hours, some 3, some 4, some beginner, some intermediate. We will clearly state which is which.
This group will have lots of other benefits other than kayaking including exclusive invitations to our yacht parties and electric boat mixers which will mostly be free admission for members.
Not enough to convince you?? For those who do not have their own equipment Balboa Fun Tours will rent Kayaks and paddleboards for half their normal price for members only (Just pay cash when renting)
Sign up and Enjoy the benefits of good health and great new friends. This is an active group so please DO NOT SIGN UP if you do not intent to take part in our adventures.
