Let's go for a beautiful zen morning paddle - we begin at Azalea Park and we'll go downstream to the cliffs and back to where we began.

We'll look for birds, turtles, and other wildlife. This event is appropriate for strong beginners who can handle the upstream current. No whitewater or rocks.

This is a bring-your-own-boat event.
