SPOTS FOR THIS EVENT ARE CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. Please sign up for our waiting list to be contacted in case of cancellations and keep an eye on our website and newsletter to hear about more events in the future.


Learn the basics of paddling. No experience necessary! We begin with a quick look at the equipment and how to be safe on the water. After we will learn how to get in and out of a boat as we head out on the water to practice skills and paddling strokes. We will play games and tour around the lagoon.


This event has limited spots, so we will prioritize the purchases of those that did not register for the previous Kayaking or Canoeing Events to allow for as many of our graduate students to participate. If you have registered for either of the previous events as well as this one, we will be refunding your ticket for the latest event.
