How can I find out about kayaking times and locations?
What should I bring?
Where do you meet?
The most common meeting locations are Dan Foley Park and the Vallejo marina.
But, we often find new places to Kayak and sometimes carpool to out-of-city locations. Meeting locations are announced on Facebook.
Dan Foley Park, Vallejo, CA
Vallejo Marina (usually meet in Zio Fraedo's parking lot)
Do I have to own a kayak or life vest?
You do not have to own any equipment!
Several group members generously bring extra kayaks, paddles, and life vests to share with the group.
How much does it cost?
The group is free and open to all, but there is a recommended contribution of $5-10 at every kayaking meeting for those who can afford it, especially if you borrow our equipment or come to Kayak Katie's training sessions.
Right now, a few members are paying for all:
The members who are absorbing these expenses can only afford so much. Member contributions are absolutely vital to keep the group going as more people join and our expense increase.
What if I don't know how to kayak?
That's OK! Kayak Katie is our volunteer trainer and provides beginner training at some of our kayak meetings.
On the days that Katie is not training, just let us know that you are a beginner. Someone will be happy to show you the basics!
