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.

Half-day Paddle Camps focus on developing paddling skills in recreational kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards.  Campers receive instruction in paddling technique, safety, and river navigation. We explore different sections of the Haw River throughout the week. Campers should leave with a much greater understanding of paddlesports and on water confidence.  Emphasis will be placed on teaching about conservation efforts designed to protect and preserve the Haw River for future generations.

 

Half-day Paddle Camp Fee:  $195/week

Half-day Paddle Camps are from 9:00AM until 1:00pm Monday through Friday.  Drop off and pick up locations will be at our main office in Saxapahaw, (6079 Swepsonville-Saxapahaw Road) unless the camp is conducted in cooperation with Carrboro Parks & Recreation in which case you must register through them and they will tell you the drop off and pick up locations.

Our camps are operated by The Haw River Canoe & Kayak Co. and offered in partnership with other organizations. You may contact us for additional information; however, you must register through our partners if the camp is conducted in partnership with another organization.

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: $40 per person with the canoe/kayak provided.

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 at the Swepsonville River Park Access paddling a short distance to spirit island and the puryear portage.  We will stop on the river just after the portage for a picnic lunch!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. Guests are asked to bring a picnic style lunch packed in a waterproof container.  (no glass items please)

Fee: $45 per person with the canoe/kayak provided.
