Join Margaret for this flat water river paddle

We’ll meet at 1:00 PM and put in at 1:15 PM.

Participants may bring their own equipment or rent equipment from Genesee Waterways Center. 

All paddlers will need to wear a personal flotation device.

If renting from Genesee Waterways Center, they will provide the kayak/canoe, paddle/oar and personal flotation device. One kayak and gear is also available to borrow from Sandy. Preference will be given to the first member to ask who hasn't borrowed in the past or in a while.

Optional: Let's go out for a bite to eat after the paddle! We will look for a place with outdoor seating.


  • A mask - to wear when in close proximity to others, helping with loading and unloading, etc. 
  • A must: Your kayak, paddles, PFD/life jacket (unless you are renting), insect repellent, water, waterproof bag for phone.
  • Recommended: binoculars, camera, snack, hat, sunscreen. Wear water shoes and clothes that can get wet (quick dry clothes). Don't carry anything that can't get wet unless it is in a waterproof container. You might also want to bring a band to secure your glasses or sunglasses and an extra set of clothes in case you get wet.

Fees if renting: 

  • Single Kayak $25 for up to 3 hours
  • Double Kayak $50 for up to 3 hours
  • Canoe $50 for up to 3 hours
  • If more than 10 people rent, we may be able to get a discount if we can set it up in advance

Are you vaccinated? Please let us know when you register. Based on that response, we can tailor appropriate CDC safety protocols for this meeting.

Launch Site: Genesee Waterways Center, 149 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester, NY 14611
