Paddle board this Friday!

Join WPWA this Friday for one of two
Evening Paddle Programs!

Bioluminescent Paddle
on Ninigret Pond
7:00 to 9:30pm

Introduction to Paddleboarding
at the WPWA Campus
5:30 to 7:30pm
Bioluminescent Paddles Are Back!
Friday July 14th 7-9:30pm
Last summer's guided Bioluminescent Paddles featured beautiful evenings highlighted by watching the glowing comb jellyfish as they swirled off our paddles.  The breathtaking views of Ninigret Pond, the rising moon, and the nighttime wildlife were equally enchanting.
We are excited to bring you the first bioluminescent paddle this Friday night from 7:00 to 9:30pm. Directions to the Charlestown, RI meeting location will be emailed to you following your online registration.  WPWA will provide everyone with a single person kayak, life jacket and paddle at no extra cost.  A limited number of tandem kayaks can be made available upon request. 
WPWA strives to bring you guided programs in which you can feel relaxed while paddling in a setting that is typically outside the comfort zone of most paddlers.  Your trained staff has developed a safe and exciting experience that no one should miss out on.  To ensure your safety, participants must be at least 10 years old and able to paddle without assistance.  If you are a Beginner Level paddler, you’ll need to practice a bit more this summer so you can join us next year.
Program Cost:
$40 per person for WPWA Dragonfly and Trout members.  Non-members $65 per person, which includes a basic WPWA Dragonfly Membership at a savings of $10. If you are a WPWA Otter, Osprey or Eagle level member, the program is free, so you must contact directly to register.
