Join our staff for a unique kayak excursion on the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. Most paddles take place on Maryland’s upper Eastern Shore, and each paddle features a unique theme. During a typical voyage, participants paddle through scenic, underdeveloped portions of one of the Bay’s tributaries while learning about regional flora and fauna specific to that location.
Paddles are either 2.5 hours long at $30 per person or day long at $55 per person. Day trips will feature a meal plus additional cultural exposure. Kayaks and gear are provided so all you need is water, a snack, and your binoculars! Minimum age to participate is 12.
Full Moon Paddle
Cost: $55.00. Includes sit-down dinner at Bad Alfred’s (Cassinelli’s) and a guided full moon paddle.
The trip starts at 5:15 pm at the Holt Education Center, and ends at the same location at 8:30 pm.
DATE PADDLING LOCATION THEME TIDE
The program begins with a sit-down dinner at The Retriever, a new watering hole and restaurant located on High Street in the heart of historic Chestertown. Following this meal, paddlers launch their kayaks at Wilmer Park and explore the secluded confines of Radcliffe Creek while watching the moonrise over the tributary. After the paddle guests return to The Retriever for dessert, a cheese plate, and a port wine course. What a great way to start off the weekend!
NOTE: Sunset on Saturday, October 3rd is at 6:43 pm and moonrise is at 7:55 pm.
