CLUB PADDLES & EVENTS
The Long Island Paddlers is not a professional paddling organization. Our members coordinate paddles for their own enjoyment and the enjoyment of the rest of the paddling community. Skill sessions, while a great way to learn, are not run by professional instructors. The trip coordinators are not professional guides or instructors. Many of them are highly skilled and experienced paddlers, but they do not have any professional credentials. You choose to join the Long Island Paddlers coordinated trips at your own risk. The use of alcohol and drugs on club paddles is prohibited
Paddling is a lot of fun, but there are certain guidelines and rules that should be followed. First, read about Trip Levels to make sure you are capable of completing the paddle trip as planned. Second, read Paddling Guidelines so that you know what equipment is necessary for a safe and successful paddle. If you wish to bring a non-member as a guest, please contact the trip leader directly before the trip.
All trips are subject to weather conditions. Trip leaders will notify all attendees of any changes reflecting the trip via email.
See attachment for trip route.
In case of adverse paddling conditions in Bellport Bay, the alternate plan is to paddle up the Carmans River with a stop at Indian Landing and optional nature trail hike.
Refer to attachment for planned route.
Last year, some of the birds we saw on this paddle included at least one juvenile Bald Eagle, numerous osprey and Great Blue Heron, Great Egret/Great White Heron, swans, cormorants, various ducks and gulls, American Oystercatchers and Red-tailed Hawks. On one of the paddles, we saw more than 20 Great Egrets perched in a single tree.
