On Thursday evenings during the summer, Catawba Riverkeeper offers flatwater kayaking experiences.

Thursday evening paddles are great for date nights, happy hour with friends, or fun with the family.

For $25, you get a kayak, paddle, PFD, safety instruction, and a guided tour on the water. If you prefer to bring your own boat and gear, for $10 you can join the guided tour and learn from our guest speakers.
