PRIVATE GUIDED PADDLES ON THE WOOD AND PAWCATUCK RIVERS

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.

Scheduling is done according to your and our guide's 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 can not provide.
