The program runs on weekends and holidays from May 15th to October 15th, and on many weekday evenings. You can take one of the kayaks out for a short 20-minute paddle inside the protected embayment in front of the boathouse. You get a life jacket, a kayak, a paddle, and some tips on paddling. You will need to stay inside the protected embayment, but otherwise you are on your own to enjoy the river and the sunshine. Bring a bathing suit, or shorts and a T-Shirt.
