Calendar of Trips

We add trips to our schedule as they are requested. If you don’t see the trip you would like on our calendar you can register for the one you are interested in and we will add it to our calendar as long as our schedule permits. Trips are created on a first come, first serve basis so the further ahead you register the more options you have in trips and start time. Visit the Choosing a Trip page for guidance to help you decide which trip would be best for your group.

Outdoor activities are always subject to changes in weather. If there is just a light rain or passing shower we can go ahead with the trip. Incase of storms with heavy rains and/or lightning we will cancel the trip and notify you as far ahead as possible. Trip availability also depends on the river levels.

Haw River Canoe and Kayak Co has joined forces with the Burlington Maynard Aquatic Center to offer the Piedmont paddling community an opportunity to take kayak roll instruction any Wednesday night throughout the year. There is no better place to start learning entry level, or advanced paddling skills than in a large, crystal clear pool. Our sessions are from 7:00pm to 8:30 pm. The address for Burlington Maynard Aquatic Center is 1402 Overbrook Road. Burlington, NC 27215

All gear can be provided with instruction. We can provide whitewater, or touring kayaks for our instruction. You are also welcome to bring your own gear to use in this class, we only require that you clean your gear thoroughly to ensure you do not introduce any algae into the pools water system.

This course is made up of 4 sessions of 1.5 hours each.  Very few people master a kayak roll the first session, but by the fourth session, students should have a confident flatwater roll.  Private boaters are also welcome to come in and use the pool with their own equipment to practice rolling for a $5.00 entry fee (Paid to the BMAC at their front desk).

With summer in full swing there is no better way to cool off than to be rolling down the river.

Fee: $100 per person for instruction plus $5.00 entrance fee paid to BMAC for each session.

To practice your rolls with your own boat and paddling gear there is just the $5.00 entrance fee, paid to BMAC.

Spirit Island in the Haw River is located just downriver from a dam and powerhouse
that in the early part of the twentieth century supplied electricity to a textile mill in
Swepsonville, NC. Today, the Island is remote, wild, peaceful and a wonderful place to
escape the stresses of an urban lifestyle.
We begin this canoe and/or kayak trip with a picnic lunch on Spirit Island. Following
lunch, our paddle will take us downriver to Saxapahaw. Because of the remote nature
of this stretch of river, birds and wildlife are easily seen. Volcanic rock outcrops along
the shoreline show evidence of an interesting geologic past.

Fee: $35 per person with the canoe/kayak provided.

* For an additional charge, lunch can be provided by the Saxapahaw General Store.  In addition to $3.00 per boat and the price of the picnic lunch, we will place your order, pick it up and have it ready for you to take on the trip.  See the menu below for what is available.

Nothing can be more beautiful than a full moon rising above a Piedmont lake. There is just something magical about moonbeams and water — and sharing the experience of looking at the moon with someone special, even if that someone special is just you.

Participants arrive early enough in the evening to practice paddling, enjoy a beautiful sunset and adjust their eyes to the night sky. As the moonlight gets brighter, we will paddle around to enjoy the night sounds. Eventually, we will “raft-up” and lay back to fully take in our surroundings.

Fee: $35 per person with the canoe/kayak provided, $30 per person with your own boat.

Because of its biological and ecological signifcance, land on both sides of the Haw River upriver of the dam at Highway 15-501 in Bynum is part of the Haw Slopes State Natural Area.

A diversity of habitats includes rich forested slopes, islands, rocky outcrops and wetlands. Both rare and ancient plants are found along the shore. Great blue herons, belted kingfishers, Canada geese, red-tail hawks and eagles are commonly seen while paddling. Occasionally, deer, beaver and muskrats present themselves.

Flat-water upriver of the dam is especially well-suited for both the beginner paddler and anyone intersted in nature. Parents paddling with children find the experience particularly gratifying.

Fee: $35 per person with the canoe/kayak provided, $30 per person with your own boat.
