Friday Field Trips

 Join Us

Each Friday we explore a different lake or river, and you're welcome to join us! For these special trips, we invite you to bring your own kayak (no charge) or rent one from us at a special Friday price. This year we are focusing on our new Pool 2 Mississippi Trips, with a few trips there throughout the season. We will have a Friday evening lake event once a month too. And lots of other fun outings planned!

To see where we are headed next, follow us on Facebook or check our  Special Events page. You can also always contact us to see what's coming up. Pre-registration by email 48 hours ahead of time is required if you want to rent a kayak or are bringing your own and want to be part of a cooperative shuttle for river trips.  Times and meeting locations will be posted about a week before the outing. 

Details for each trip will be posted under events on our Facebook page a few days before the event. Or email us at:
