Night Sounds By Moonlight


Enjoy a three-hour breathtaking trip on the Potomac River at Riley's Lock. All our beginner trips are specifically designed for people with limited paddling experience (calm water, stable kayaks, friendly instruction). After a quick paddling lesson, we'll listen intently for evening sounds such as owls, bull frogs, and many other creatures of the night. These trips are offered on evenings when the moon is full or nearly full. All equipment is included. Experiencing a moonrise from a kayak will take your breath away! See below for details.

And don't worry: if the trip ends and you find yourself wishing you'd signed up for the entire package, we make it easy to upgrade. See Flatwater Membership Package Upgrade for details.
