Come join Paths, Peaks and Paddles, The Cooperage and the Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Center for our third annual paddle along the Buffalo River! Join us and learn some of the history of the grain mills, the harbor, navy vessels and enjoy the fine sunset at the mouth of the harbor.
If you are looking for some place different to paddle or a group to paddle with please join us for a fun evening paddle. We meet at the Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Center located at 345 Ohio Street, near Republic Street, across from Father Conway Park at 6:00pm. If you do not have a kayak you are welcome to rent one for $30.00pp. If you have your own kayak feel free to join the group for a great evening. Cost is $20.00. We plan to be off the water at approximately 9:00pm.
From the Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Center dock we explore along the grain mills, check out the sail boats and navy ships. Weather and conditions permitting we will explore out along the break wall.
It’s such a peaceful feeling sitting in your kayak watching the pulse of the City going on around you. The ambient lights from the many commercial buildings are observed for miles. Cars quickly pass overhead on the skyway while other cars are making their way along the city streets. Last year we sat beside one of the naval ships and listened to a band. Sailboats are plentiful and quite spectacular as they make their way in and out of the harbor.
This monthly event is scheduled to take place rain or shine for 6 scheduled Monday evenings during the summer. Check your calendar for your availability for: 5/14, 6/25, 7/16, 8/20, 9/10 and 10/1/12. Registration is required if you need to rent a kayak by calling 716-213-0350. With each boat rental you will receive a paddle and PFD. PFD’s are required by everyone on this event. We kindly ask that you leave all electric devices behind for a few hours so everyone can relax and unwind. There will be no alcoholic beverages or drugs on the water.
