Guided Sunset Paddle on the Duck River
July 19 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
See the sights and sounds of the river at sunset and into twilight
This guided trip starts just a couple of hours before sunset so that participants can view the changes on the river as the sun goes down and the moon rises. After enjoying sunset, participants will complete the paddle during twilight and early evening. Higher Pursuits will provide a lead and assistant guide for this trip as well as lights for the boats.
Paddlers on the guided sunset float as the sun has set and the moon begins to rise.
Length of Trip: 5 to 6 hours – this trip ends after dark, normally between 9 and 10 pm
What to Bring: We will provide lights for each boat, but you are welcome to bring a white light of your own. Bring plenty of water or hydrating beverages. Alcohol is not permitted on guided trips.
We recommend shoes that will stay on your feet (flip-flops tend to fall off in the water and float away). We suggest bringing a jacket in case you get cold once the sun sets. You may also want a pair of lightweight pants.
What to Expect on your guided trip:
We will meet at the canoe base a couple of hours before sunset to get life jackets, pick out boats and also talk about the trip. This trip has a lead and assistant guide on all sunset paddles. The group will paddle for a little bit before sunset, stop to have a snack on the river and then we will put lights on the boats.
Minimum Age Requirement: 12 years old and up
