Our Saint Patrick's Day Paddle begins at 1:00 pm at River Road Park. After loading up our boats we are off to Keg to set up camp. From there we head back out and paddle to the mysterious Campbell Island. Once home to a pre-Civil War light house, Campbell also hosted Native Americans, early Europeans, and no doubt a few pirates! Perhaps the leprechauns will lead us to some buried treasure....
From Campbell we paddle back over to Keg for dinner and Some Saint Patrick's Day revelry! The next morning we make the return voyage with a stop on Sharks Tooth Island to explore for sharks teeth and other fossilized matter. From there it's a hop, skip, and jump back to our take out at River Road Park.
We will supply boats and all kayak related gear, including dry bags for packing. We will also provide dinner that night as well as some Saint Pat's surprises! You will need to bring camping gear and your beverage of choice. Come get your green on with The Expedition Organization!
