"Thanks for a full summer of absolutely amazing memories!"

collage of our 2012 season


Everyone's welcome. We get children and grandchildren as young as age 10, some have never been in a kayak before. From youngsters to seniors, from singles of all ages to couples to entire families, everyone has a good time. Paddle alone in quite solitude or enjoy friendly chatter with your new paddling friends. Always calm, flat water locations and helping hands to unload or load your kayak or canoe. Enjoy the natural scenery and/or the colorful lakeside homes and camps. Make new friends and explore new places!


Most people in America have a place the can kayak nearby. But here in central NH we are blessed. We have lots of places to go paddling. During our June, July, Aug. paddling season we never visit the same site/adventure twice and we never get to visit all the available sites. This diversity is exactly why you should take up paddling if you live nearby and join us to make new friends and discover new places to paddle.
