Social Paddles

We arrange regular social paddles where a group of us go out for a couple hours to paddle our favourite spots. These include the Newry Island group, around Cape Hillsborough, Shoal Point, Slade Point, The Harbour, Flat Top and Round Top Islands and others further south. Other paddles are up the valley on flat water trips in the Pioneer River or on one of the dams.  You can bring along your own kayak or sit on top, or arrange to have a paddle of one of the demo Mirage or Stellar kayaks Kayaksnthings has available. We usually go out for 2 – 4 hours on a Sunday morning and you can bring some snacks to have with us on a beach. You can have a chat to our regular experience paddlers, they are always willing to pass on their knowledge. Check out the list below or on the Face Book Page. If you use Face Book, please like our page, we are regularly posting new and interesting things about all sorts of kayaking subjects.
