Night Kayaking Under a Full Moon – Extraordinary Excitement with Events & Adventures
Night kayaking is not something many people have experienced, but everyone with a love for the outdoors definitely should! While kayaking has been featured as a competitive sport in the Summer Olympic Games since 1936, night kayaking is a new twist on an old favorite. So in the Spirit of Rio, Events & Adventures members in the Bay Area grabbed paddles and took on the Bay under moonlight for a kayak venture unlike any other.
Our members were dazzled by the serene and beautiful surroundings of the Bay, with both the moon and city light playing off the water. “This is the most incredible trip you can do in the Bay Area at night! As you paddle along the San Francisco waterfront, you’ll be mesmerized by the beautiful city lights,” said Monica, one our great San Francisco members. “It really adds to the ambiance as the sun sets and the moon rises.”
It was a magical experience as the full moon lit up the water and we could see animals swimming underneath our kayaks! Seeing these animals made us feel like we were really connected with our environment and experience. On nights of a full moon, time seems to stand still as it casts a mystical glow on the water. Our kayaks coasted across the Bay, following the arc of the rising moon while we laughed and tried to keep our balance so no one fell in.
Events & Adventures gave our members the opportunity to be adventurous on a Friday night, instead of heading to a bar or restaurant they bonded with members and worked together to create a memorable experience. There are many more of these experiences coming up; in a way, Events & Adventures turns the extraordinary into the ordinary!
Just another day at the office with Events and Adventures at a truly amazing kayaking event at a little lake in the middle of Vancouver. Despite major traffic and transit delays somehow every single member always has a great attitude and can’t wait to kayak to the middle of the lake and sit and chat for an hour. Of course we have little races and get some exercise but it is really about the chats and companionship no matter how hard the day was. We laugh and joke and then go out for some more at a nearby pub. It was a beautiful day and a splendid way to end it..with all of our E&A friends.
When you are single and live in or around Seattle you have to get out and enjoy the water that is all around here. The Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, Lake Washington and Lake Union.
We just had a couple of great on-the-water events, Kayaking in Lake Union and Sunset Sailing in Elliott Bay and into the Puget Sound. When it comes to our water adventures it was clear that not all of us had been out Kayaking or Sailing before. Which was fine because the club had set these up to allow folks that are beginners to jump in and have fun along with other that may have more experience.
While we were out Sailing we had Champagne and sandwiches and other things to nibble on and of course amazing views.
Kayaking is much more hands on. We had a great mix of newbie’s and folks that had been out on kayaks before. It was a lot of fun and as a group we went to a nearby restaurant/bar to swap stories and mingle a bit.
There’s no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than with Events and Adventures Dallas on the water! We went out to Lake Ray Hubbard and spent the afternoon with our favorite Kayak instructor. We call him Kayak Dave. After we had our lifejackets, boats and general instruction Kayak Dave took us to a minimum wake bay on the edge of Lake Ray Hubbard. He did a really nice job of making sure everyone knew how to paddle for more motion, less work. He pointed out wildlife and taught us cool stuff about the lake we had a leisurely paddle with the wind to the end of the bay then we headed back. Against the wind was bit more challenging so we stopped at a sand bar half way for a break. Jade talked enough smack that she was helped out of the boat via flipping by one of the guys before she got out on her own. I know that payback will be fun to watch. After everyone cooled off in the lake and rehydrated we headed back to the launch area where just about everyone said they would be sore tomorrow. After an early dinner and discussion as to just how outrageous Jade’s retribution is going to be we all headed home for a late nap or early night. Great way to spend any afternoon in Texas!
