Join the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association for a night paddling event along the beautiful north shore of Canandaigua Lake! This is a one-of-a-kind guided paddle around the north end of the lake on an illuminated single kayak, tandem kayak, or paddle board. It’s a nighttime experience where you will view the lake floor while paddling under the stars.

Attendees will gather on the west side of Kershaw Park near the kayak launch and be provided with a paddleboard, kayak, or canoe, a PFD (personal flotation device), and instruction from a guide from Canandaigua Sailboard.

You must be 12 years old or older in order to pilot rental equipment. Any adult reserving equipment rental equipment who wishes to take a child under 12 years old along, will be given a free PFD for their child to ride on the same equipment.

Rain date: August 5th, 2023, 8:30-10:00 PM

This event is sponsored by the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
