Paddle this weekend

Join WPWA for Two More GREAT Paddle Programs!
Bioluminescent Paddle
on Ninigret Pond
This Friday August 4th 
from 7:30pm to 10:00pm
AND
Introduction to Paddleboarding
at the WPWA Campus
This Sunday August 6th 
from 9:00am to 11:00am
 Bioluminescent Paddle
Friday August 4th 7:30-10:00pm
This year's guided Bioluminescent Paddles on Ninigret Pond have been a ton of fun and featured a lot of Oooooo's and Ahhhhh's as we watched the glowing jellyfish swirl off our paddles.  The breathtaking views of Ninigret Pond, the moon, and the nighttime wildlife have been equally enchanting.
We are excited to bring you the third bioluminescent paddle this Friday night from 7:30 to 10:00pm. 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.   
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 Member, the program is free and you will not be asked for payment when you register online.
