Spring Paddle

Join the ranger for a leisurely paddle along the historic Dismal Swamp Canal. Everything you need--kayak, paddle, and PFD--along with instruction, will be provided. Don't forget that paddling miles count for your NC 100 Mile Challenge!

*Program is weather-dependent, since early March can be unpredictable. Limited to 8 boats, so you MUST pre-register by calling the office at 252-771-6593.*
