The gulf coast has some of the most diverse paddling environments in the country. Dedicated to sharing knowledge and building community with experienced paddlers of kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, and surfskis, we will help those with the appropriate equipment and skill explore bayous, cypress swamps, black water creeks, and muddy rivers. Camp out on river sand bars, and paddle miles of open water to visit the barrier islands in the Mississippi Sound. Train and race the Battle of the Bayou, the Pascagoula Run, or the Chattajack. Let’s hit the water!
