LOCATION has been CHANGED - this trip now meets at KINGS LANDING PARK pier. Park at the pool parking lot and walk down to the river.
A perfect trip for beginners to learn about kayaking and get out on the water. We will focus on basic kayak skills and the ecology of the Patuxent River.

If bringing your own kayak, you will need to arrive early to off-load your boat and park. Parking space is limited.
Ages 9 years to adult
Participants must be at least 9 years old to accompany an adult in a double kayak, and at least 12 years old to ride in a single kayak. Those under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Due to the limited number of kayaks, we may not be able to accommodate your kayak preference. There is a chance that the demand for kayaks exceeds our capacity. If we are unable to fit you into the trip, you will receive a full refund.
