    •Have fun!  Get together with other paddling enthusiasts to explore new routes and revisit favorites. We laugh a lot, we’re always eager to welcome new friends and we know some great places to stop for a post-trip ice cream or maybe dinner.

    •Stay Safe!  Paddling with a group is the safest way to go. If you happen to take an unexpected swim, there’s always someone to help get you and your gear back in your boat. Our trip leaders carry rescue equipment and everyone wears a PFD (personal flotation device). Each paddle starts with a brief Safety Talk.

    •Learn New Skills!  We offer trips for paddlers of all skill levels, on everything from quiet ponds to fast moving water. Many of our trips are suitable for novices. With plenty of opportunity to learn new skills, there’s no need to stay a novice for long.

​    Save Energy!  Paddling upstream? Forget about it! We always organize a shuttle, so everyone’s boat gets back to the car it came on. You can also save gas by carpooling to put-ins with other members.

    •Connect with the Wider Paddling World!   As a Paddle America Club, ACKC is an affiliate of the American Canoe Association, a not-for-profit for paddlers nationwide. Our events are sanctioned and insured by the ACA.  As an ACKC member, you become an ACA member as well, at a reduced rate, allowing you to benefit from that organization’s many services and benefits.
