Long Island Paddlers exists to share a common love for kayaking, canoeing and the outdoors. We exchange information on safety, education, paddling experiences and other paddling-related subjects. Our club is open to all who would like to participate in this sport. We are active all year, both on the water and at our meetings with various programs and guest speakers. We participate in river clean-ups and other conservation activities and encourage state and local governing bodies to improve access to local waters for non-motorized craft.
Below is a partial list of some of
the upcoming Stand Up Paddle (SUP), Canoe, Kayak and Outrigger Canoe events. To find
