River Kayaking Trip
August 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$70
Join certified kayak instructors and naturalists for a leisurely paddle on the Potomac River or one of its tributaries. The exact location of the trip will depend on the weather and river conditions on that day. We’ll paddle for three – four hours on moving water, so you should be proficient at basic strokes and comfortable paddling flat water for a few hours at a time. We’ll do a quick review of moving water safety considerations and maneuvers before getting on the water. This is not an instructional course, so if you’ve never paddled, please try Beginning Recreational Kayaking and Beyond the Basics Parts 1 and 2 courses first. Fee covers kayak, paddle, PFD, a dry bag, and round-trip transportation from Black Hill Regional Park to the river locations. Don’t forget to pack your lunch, snacks, and plenty of water. FOBH $68
