Page Background


Enjoy a guided paddle and learn about our ecosystem and local history. Safety permitting, there may be the opportunity to wade and swim. Kayaks, paddles and safety gear will be provided.

Paddlers will explore various locations around Anne Arundel County. Each trip will include basic kayak instruction and a whole lot of FUN, so be prepared to GET WET! Our certified instructors will be with you all day to share their knowledge of not only paddling, but also the local ecosystem, diversity of life and area history. Safety permitting, there will be the opportunity to wade and swim. We provide all the equipment necessary to enjoy a day on the water.

Please bring:

  • lunch, snacks, and plenty of water,
  • a towel,
  • sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat,
  • dry clothes.

Please wear either strapped sandals, sneakers that can get wet or water shoes-no flip-flops.

Children must be at least 13 years old to participate and all children 13-17 must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Beginner Trips: Trips which are more easily navigable and in calmer waters. These trips are geared more towards an introduction to kayaking and basic on-the-water skills. Open to all, including more advanced paddlers. These trips last between 4-5 hours.

Intermediate Trips: Trips which are usually longer and located in areas that may require more familiarity with paddling. We will still be doing instruction, but due to the nature of the trip are asking that registrants have some experience on the water. These trips last between 5-6 hours.

All trips will start at 8:30am. Please use a valid email for registration as all further communication about the trips will be done through the email address given upon registration.
