Our long time members may also register.

Meet at Cheanuh Marina in Becher Bay. We will paddle around Becher Bay, following the shoreline in a clockwise direction, exploring the many coves along the way. After reaching the Bedford islands, we will head west, crossing the mouth of the bay, to reach the western shore of Becher Bay. Lunch at Aylard Beach. After lunch we will continue our clockwise paddle, returning to the marina.

The cost to launch at the marina is $10/kayak (previously was $4/kayak).

Hoping the weather should cooperate in late July, if needed, we will do an abbreviated paddle in the bay proper, as it is well protected.
