Full Moon Paddle
Join one community to light up your world. Starting with music and potluck snacks at the shop, share time with friends new and old as the sun sets. Then, decorate yourself and/or your boat for a guided glowstick paddle under city lights and celestial skies. Reserve a date and a time for this post-sunset paddle before it books out, $30/person or $15 if you bring your own boat! Full Moon Paddle is a great way to see the locks and the falls through different eyes before or after taking a Willamette Falls Tour. Looking forward to seeing you for a night full of fun.
Join the community on the water during the weekend of the full moon! Each Full Moon Paddle will be split up into separate Pods to minimize wait times. Let eNRG Kayaking make registration simple by guiding you through the process of picking your Pod. First select your desired date and then you can select your desired start time. Your party is responsible for reserving the same Pod. Different times give you different experiences – whether it be the sunset, the factory lights, or the actual full moon. Feel free to bring snacks and extra lights! No alcoholic beverages for the entirety of the event; must be at least 18 years of age. Call eNRG Kayaking at (503) 772 – 1122 for questions and reservations.
