Calling all paddlers and friends! Bring your kayaks, canoes, paddleboards or other human powered craft to paddle and play at our National Water Trail celebration Saturday June 24th. Event is FREE, registration is only for equipment rentals. Read more
In June 2014, the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail was designated a National Water Trail by the National Park Service, one of only a handful in the country. Our 371 mile trail encompasses all of the Kitsap Peninsula and is one of the most spectacular paddling destinations in the world. Come out and join us as we celebrate the wonderful, majestic and diverse natural resources the peninsula has to offer.
The Family Paddle is a free to join short, approximately two mile paddle from Silverdale Waterfront Park around the north end of the bay and back before joining the paddlers from the Ride the Tide, triathlon event paddlers, and other paddling enthusiasts for the procession to the beach lead by our local native american tribal canoes and the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail Festival at the Silverdale Waterfront Park. We recommend that you organize your own groups of family and friends and put one person in charge that can communicate with the trip leader if necessary. If you don't have your own human-powered watercraft, we are offering single kayak, double kayak, and stand up paddleboard rentals.
Looking for something a bit more? Join us for the Ride the Tide, a six mile paddle from Evergreen Park in Bremerton.
This is a free to join, unsupervised group paddle; the trip leader only provides direction and emergency on water assistance if needed. In other words you are responsible for yourself and your equipment while on the water.
All paddlers are eligible to enter in a free raffle drawing and the chance to win a Kitsap Water Trails Family Weekend Getaway which includes an overnight stay at Oxford Suites Silverdale, a lovely gift basket filled local products, gift cards for dinning, gear and a kayak rental - a $400 value! Just stop by the Olympic Outdoor Center / Visit Kitsap tent before the paddle. Raffle will be held after the paddle and winner must be present. One ticket per paddler. Sponsored by Visit Kitsap Peninsula.
The schedule may be subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. We will paddle rain or shine with the exception of severe weather or hazardous conditions.
Silverdale Waterfront Park: 3337 NW Byron St., Silverdale, WA 98383
Unload your boat and equipment at the boat ramp then find a place to park your car. This may be several blocks away so give yourself plenty of time. Of course you can paddle in from other water trail locations on the bay as well. There is no check in required unless you are renting gear but you will want to come to the Olympic Outdoor Center tent for information and a raffle ticket either way.
* Bottled water and a snack will be available for $5 at the Olympic Outdoor Center booth prior to the paddle.
We have single kayaks, double kayaks and stand up paddlebaords available to rent for the event. All rentals include individually fitted personal flotation device and paddle. Kayak rentals include a bilge pump and paddle float. A short lesson or refresher is also included with each rental, as well as help with fitting of all equipment. All rental equipment will be delivered to and picked up from the event by us.
