Stargazing Float

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.
