May Paddles

Hello fellow Mice!

It's about that time! Dust the cobwebs off your boats and get out to enjoy the water! Here's what's coming up:

May 3
There are a few mice going on this paddle. Unfortunately, there is no room for any more paddlers! Keep it in mind for next year. 7.5 miles along the dismal swamp canal, with shuttle, lunch, and a t-shirt included!

May 9-11
Check your newsletter for more info on this event. Day paddlers are always welcome!

May 17th- Saturday
64th Street Narrows, Seashore State Park
If you are thinking of buying a kayak, or just want to paddle a bunch of different boats for next to nothing, you need to be here! Details are at the following link:

Saturday, June 1st
Lynnhaven Inlet- Lesner Bridge boat ramp
10am put-in

We will paddle around the inlet and up the various creeks before heading over to Bubbas for a beverage and snack. This is a beginner/intermediate paddle. Beginners can paddle around the river area and get back to the put-in whenever they want. Paddling across the inlet, or in and out of Bubbas is VERY tricky with the strong currents. NEVER try it alone.

As always, try to email if you will be paddling. If we know you are coming, we will wait for you.

PFD's are required on your boat or on you. Drinking water and sunscreen are highly recommended.

When we don't stop somewhere like Bubba's, we often bring our lunches along and try to stop somewhere scenic to eat it.

There are usually some extra boats around, as several mice have more than one. Just give the group a little advance notice, and we will try to help you out.

If you have any ideas for a future paddle, let me know, and we will try to get it scheduled. We try to do two weekend paddles and a weekday evening paddle each month.


The River Mice group runs on email. All paddles will be announced by email, and on the blog. Most planned paddles will also be in the Mogul newsletter. Any changes or updates on paddles will be done by email. If you want to get on the email list, or be removed from it, let me know.

See you on the water!

Check Out the Google Map!

Click on the link on the left side of the page and take a look at the River Mice map! Each of the markers is a put-in or other place of interest. There is a list of the markers on the left side of the map. Click on the name to zoom in on the location.

You can take a look at possible paddle routes, or get directions to the put-in location.

More locations will be added as time goes on, as well as some links for each location.

Give it a try, and see you on the water!
