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 this course, we will offer a short tutorial on paddling a stand up paddleboard; however, it is best if you have had some previous paddleboard experience which can be obtained by taking our Quick Start Stand Up Paddleboard course. After a short paddle to a calm spot in the river, we will move through a Yoga practice as a group.  The practice will be tailored to participants' experience with yoga. You will learn to perform Yoga poses while floating on water. Because of the moving surface, you will be engaging muscles that you would not normally, which makes this a fun and challenging class! Adding the imbalance of floating means that you will have to use your core much more than you would in a studio yoga class. We will finish  with seated meditation on the paddleboard and of course some time floating in Relaxation Pose. You may want to plan to get wet; falling off a paddleboard 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 and starts at 9:00 a.m. 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 the instructor

Fee: $45 per person with paddleboard, paddle, PFD (Personal Floatation Device), anchor and instructor provided.

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: $40 per person with the canoe/kayak provided.  Trip start time is 8PM.

We will meet at our main office in Saxapahaw.  6079 Swepsonville Saxapahaw road. We are in the basement of this building, our front doors face the river.

This weekend introductory course in the basics of whitewater canoeing stresses technique, safety and enjoyment. Instruction is designed to provide both an understanding of the principals of canoeing in class II whitewater and an opportunity to develop skill through practice. You will learn about equipment, strokes, whitewater maneuvers (e.g., upstream and downstream ferries, eddy turns and peel-outs), river reading, safety, rescue techniques and knot tying. The second weekend day will be devoted to a 5.5 mile river trip. If the opportunity presents itself, we will take time to observe wildlife.

Fee: $195 per person.
