This is an excellent trip for those who have never kayaked and/or those who don't have a kayak to try out the sport. We will be meeting between 10:30 and 10:45 for an 11:00 am launch. We will meet at LaSalle’s Landing Park which is across from BayCreek Paddling Center on Empire Blvd. Kayaks are available for rent at BayCreek for $35 for two hours (or $20 for an hour). https://www.baycreek.com/rentals-shuttles.html Plan on being at BayCreek at 10:30 if you are renting. We will meet you on the water at 11:00. The paddle will be both on the creek and in small bays where we should expect to see some wildlife. The paddle will be approximately 2 hours.
Bring: Your kayak, paddles, life jacket (unless you are renting) and a change of clothes. Also bring water, snack, hat, sunscreen and insect repellent. 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 (I have some to give out), binoculars, and a camera. Don’t forget water and a snack/lunch (optional).
Note: The launch spot at LaSalle’s Landing Park can be muddy. We’ll stop somewhere to eat lunch.
Directions: Take 590N. Exit at Empire Blvd. Turn right. At the bottom of the hill you will see BayCreek Paddling Center on the right. The launch site is across the road on the left.
Let us know if you are renting from BayCreek, and we’ll meet you at their dock.
Note: If you’d also like to participate in the paddle the next day and do not live close by, there is a new Hampton Inn nearby at 950 Panorama Trail S, Rochester, NY 14625
