Paddle & Party

Paddle & Party events are designed to bring the paddling community together. If you're a part of the Mike's Paddle Tribe these events are completely free. If not these events are only $25 including equipment rentals and the party afterwards. This is a great way to meet other people that are excited to paddle and explorer the bay. The community events are fun for the whole family and all levels of experience are welcome. Although, we would like participants to have at least a minimal level of paddling experience because this is not an instructional course. The party afterwards will have hors d'oeuvre and beverages. Don't miss out on these super fun events! Invite your friends and family to meet this amazing paddling community we are creating.

Skill Clinics will be held prior to these events to help you improve and advance your paddling skills. We ask that you have already completed our Level 1 Skills Course  or have similar prior experience. If you're a part of the Mike's Paddle Tribe these clinics are completely free. If not these clinics are $35 including equipment rentals.
