We paddle for about an hour upstream, attempting to stay quiet so that we can see all there is to see. We will then gather around to ask any questions and share our findings with the group before paddling back downstream to the boat launch.

This is a flat water, out-and-back trip, which means that we won’t be dealing with (or benefitting from) any current. We will put in and take out at the same location, so no shuttle is required. It is a fairly easy paddle, and we will also set the pace so that no one gets burned out from the onset.

In all, we will spend about two hours on the water. Generally, there is about an hour of set up and break down, so I expect the trip to last about 3 hours in total.

Space is limited! Fill out this form to reserve your spot today!
