About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, June 17, 2017.

The "Nation's River" is an amazing waterway that maintains a near-wilderness quality as it flows between Maryland and Virginia to Georgetown and beyond. Each of our kayaking trips focus on a section of the Potomac or a tributary, giving us the time and luxury to take a closer look at its natural and cultural history. The exact location of this trip will depend on weather and river conditions on that day. We'll paddle for three or 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. This is not an instructional course, so if you've never paddled, please try Beginning Kayaking first. Fee covers kayak, paddle, PFD, a dry bag, and round-trip transportation from Black Hill Regional Park to the river locations. FOBH $68
