expand Delmarva Paddling Weekend
Date/Time: 09.27.17 - 10.01.17 

Location: Laurel, Berlin, Snow Hill, Milton

Description:

Register now for September 28 through October 1 excursions at www.DelmarvaPaddling.com

We hope you enjoyed your summer paddling on Delmarva, and we look forward to hosting you for our waterborne excursions during the Autumn Delmarva Paddling Weekends. Fall is a fantastic season to explore Delmarva’s creeks, rivers and bays while the water is still warm and the air is cooling down. Paddling experiences will showcase fall foliage, migration, and the region’s rich history.

 
After receiving important feedback from our partner outfitters and numerous potential paddling participants, we have decided to reformat the Delmarva Paddling Weekend event. Concerns were expressed that a single weekend of paddling in a variety of locations was limiting and did not offer the best opportunity for our guests to visit the numerous paddling trail towns and enjoy all the terrific paddling opportunities that Delmarva has to offer.
 
Instead, we believe single trips scheduled in different locales on a number of weekends throughout the year will allow us to showcase the area as a truly exciting paddling destination!
 
Our paddling experiences will be centered around our Trail Towns of Laurel and Milton in Delaware, and Snow Hill and Berlin in Maryland, with a few special excursions to Smith Island in the Chesapeake Bay.

Registrations are open for September 28 through October 1 excursions, and more will be announced soon. We'll see you on the water!
