Paddling & Yoga Group Activities

"We organized this event to catch up with each other and spend some time in the sun before it gets cold again... The weather was perfect for a paddle and we were all able to hang out."

- Rebecca, Private/Group Paddle

Private/group paddling and yoga classes are available daily in June, July and August from 7–11:30am. (Available weekends only after September 5th.)
