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.

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga is a natural extension of Yoga – it encourages calm and focus, but it's done outside, with nature serving as the studio space. Being on the water will add a little more balance challenge too!

In Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga, we'll offer a short tutorial on paddling a board and after a short paddle, we'll move through a Yoga practice as a group. The practice will be tailored to participants' experience with yoga. You'll learn to perform Yoga poses while floating on water. Because of the moving surface, you'll be engaging muscles that you would not normally, which makes this a fun and challenging class! Adding the imbalance of floating means that you'll have to use your core much more than you would in a studio yoga class. We'll finish  with seated meditation on the board and of course some time floating in Relaxation Pose. You may want to plan to get wet; falling off the board has been known to happen, but it can be done safely.

This 1.5 hour course is taught on the Haw River above the dam in Saxapahaw, NC. Participants are responsible for providing clothing and footwear that can get wet, a towel and a change of clothing for the ride home.

Annette Greenway is currently the instructor for our SUP yoga sessions! You can review her available class times below

Stand up paddleboarding is a new and exciting way to get out into nature while, at the same time, having a full-body, paddling experience.  This introductory course is for those without previous stand up paddleboard experience.  It begins with learning to paddle in the prone position, progresses to the kneeling position and concludes with the stand up position.  Students will learn how to identify the “sweet spot”, conduct basic turns, paddle efficiently by using the “paddler’s box” and utilize techniques for safely falling off the board.

This 1.5-hour course is taught on the Haw River above the dams at both Saxapahaw and Bynum, NC. Participants are responsible for providing clothing and footwear that can get wet, and a change of clothing for the ride home.

Fee: $50 per person.

There is no better way to see the night sky in the Piedmont of North Carolina than by paddling, at night, on a lake, and at the time of a new moon. If astronomy is your hobby — or even if you just want to learn about what you've been looking at all these years — this float trip will be both fun and educational.

Participants arrive early enough in the evening to practice paddling, enjoy a beautiful sunset and adjust their eyes to the night sky. As the stars become brighter, everyone will “raft-up,” lay back, and identify stars and constellations.

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