We are a canoe and kayak paddle club for beginners who want to learn to paddle, novice paddlers wanting scheduled paddle trips, and experienced paddlers wanting someone to paddle with that possess similar skills. If you would like to make new friends who share your love of paddling, or want to learn a new sport, then please join us. If you are looking for quiet flat water floats or expedition and distance paddling, we look forward to paddling with you! Eastern North Carolina is a great paddle sports destination.
