GUIDED PADDLES ON THE WOOD AND PAWCATUCK RIVERS

AVAILABLE ALL SUMMER: Do your friends and family want to do a group paddle on one of the beautiful rivers in the watershed? WPWA can help you by providing boats, equipment, and an expert guide. Groups of up to 15 people can paddle the Wood River from the WPWA campus for $300. If you want to go offsite to the lower Wood or Pawcatuck River the fee will be $600.

RESTRICTIONS:
* The group organizer must be a WPWA member.
* No first time paddlers - running rivers requires some skill because you need to be able to turn and stop at any obstructions.
* No one under 10 years old in a boat by themselves.
* Everyone MUST wear a life jacket properly.
* Dates are limited - we may not be able to accommodate all groups.

Dates and times can be made according to mutual availability. We have a variety of single person kayaks, tandem kayaks, and canoes for use and we provide life jackets, paddles, and safety gear. Expect the trips to last about 3 to 4 hours. If you are going offsite some shuttling of people and cars will be required, which WPWA will not provide.

SPECIAL PROGRAM - BIOLUMINESCENT PADDLES :: Saturday, August 27, 2016 :: 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

This Event is Full!

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL. WE HOPE TO DO ONE MORE PADDLE NEXT WEEK, DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER. OR CONSIDER BOOKING A PRIVATE EVENT. SEE THE INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM.

Bioluminescent jellyfish have been spotted in Ninigret Pond, so the staff at WPWA are organizing several evening paddles to see this amazing natural phenomenon. Our second paddle is scheduled for Saturday, August 27 from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. This year we will be meeting at a private residence on Ninigret Pond in Charlestown. Directions will be emailed upon registration.

Otter, Osprey, and Eagle WPWA Members are free. Please contact Denise at denisep@wpwa.org to register. All others must register on-line. For WPWA Dragonfly and Trout members the price is $40 per person and $65 per person for non-members,which includes a basic Dragonfly Membership to WPWA. Single-person kayaks, paddles and life jackets will be provided. Because it is a private residence we prefer that participants do not bring their own boats. Feel free to bring your own life jacket if you would feel more comfortable.

Since this paddle will take place in the dark, it is not appropriate for first-time paddlers. Participants must be at least 10 years old to be able to paddle their own kayak.

Pre-registration is required and limited to no more than 15 participants a night. Registration will be taken on a first come first serve basis. We will plan on at least three nights over the next three weeks and will email out a 48-hour notice before each event.

FOR WPWA MEMBERS ONLY: If you canít make one of these nights or get closed out of registration you can consider booking a private trip for up to five participants for $275. The price will include the single person kayaks, paddles, life jackets, and one guide. Contact Chris Fox, chris@wpwa.org to arrange. Not a WPWA member? Consider joining to take advantage of this great opportunity: http://wpwa.org/membership2.php.
