Join us for an epic night on the water under the full moon! We are so stoked for this, as it looks like such a beautiful evening ahead! We can’t wait to see all of you on the lake!
(By book we mean RSVP, the event is FREE!)
We will be meeting at the Cannery at Glen Haven at 8:15pm and will set out on the water by 8:30pm. We will be paddling at a leisurely group pace 1 mile to the base of the dune at Sleeping Bear Point, and will plan to watch the sun set and the moon rise atop the (light-grade) dune before paddling the 1 mile back under the light of the moon.
If you desire to paddle a shorter distance, drive up .5 miles to the Coast Guard Station for a 1 mile paddle round trip. 😃 Plan to join us on the water as we pass by around 9:00pm!
Not into paddling but want to hang out anyway? Park at the Sleeping Bear Point trailhead and meet us at Sleeping Bear Point for sunset! 😃
This event is meant to be leisurely and FUN, therefore it will be lightly organized for you to paddle as you please. We will, however, be keeping an eye on everyone and will ensure all are accounted for throughout the evening.
All non-motorized water craft welcome! If you’re interested in joining us but lack a board of your own, we will have paddleboards available for rent for $35!
All paddleboard reservations must be made prior to 5pm the day of the paddle.
Please call us to reserve a board at 231-326-9283!

If inclement weather occurs or any changes are made to the schedule, we will advise you by 5pm the day of the event.
