Women on Water
The last WOW of the 2023 season will be on September 26.
If you would like to request a particular boat please send us an email or call the office to let us know. Also, ensure you arrive early so you have your pick of boats that are avaiable.
Registration opens on a rolling basis on Wednesdays at 8am for the following Tuesday.
WOW fills up quickly so we recommend registering right when it opens. You must be registered for WOW in order to join the group. Renters cannot join the group on the water
New 2023: We are now offering Sliding Scale Pricing and Scholarship Fund contributions (see below).
Women on Water is a wonderful event where each Tuesday evening throughout the summer women (and female-identifying folks*) who are 16+ of all paddling abilities come together for a relaxed, semi-guided paddle.
*”Women on Water” is inclusive and welcomes (but is not limited to): cis-gender women, nonbinary folks, transgender women, 2-spirited folks, those who are exploring or do not conform to gender identity, and those who feel safe and included in our space
Registration opens each Wednesday morning at 8am for the following week.
Tuesdays May through September
June/July/August – until Aug 16th: 6:30pm
August 23rd + 30th: 6pm
Please arrive 20-30 minutes before your booking to check yourself in and get yourself ready
Default Rate: $45, but sliding scale pricing is available.
Sliding Scale Pricing
What is sliding scale pricing?
The idea behind sliding scale pricing is that there are multiple price points available to participate in this activity. This is to make the program more accessible and to help reduce financial barriers for people with different levels of income.
If you have the financial means please pay our ‘default’ pricing ($45). If you do not have the means you can choose to pay a lower price ($35). If you have extra means available please consider selecting the “generous” option ($55).
We are excited to announce that parts of the proceeds from WOW will be directed towards a scholarship fund which will be used to offer spots in our summer camps for families who wouldn’t be able to afford them otherwise.
$10 of our default price for WOW will be directed to the scholarship fund.
If you select the ‘generous’ option for your WOW participation $20 will be directed to the scholarship fund.
Double Kayak discount and BYO Kayak
With the introduction of our sliding scale pricing, we have discontinued the discount for using a double kayak.
However, if you would like to paddle a double kayak with your paddling partner you are very welcome to select the “accessible” price option for each of you.
If you would like to participate with your own kayak you are also welcome to choose the “accessible” price option. This will help us pay our instructors and for the logistic of organizing this wonderful event.
