Experience Kayaking

A Journey in the Beauty of Nature

When was the last time you were on the lake and a bald eagle majestically swooped down to pluck a trout from the water near you? How often can you glide past a California black bear in its natural environment? Experience the peace and tranquility of kayaking and enjoy the beauty and splendor of the North State with views of Mt. Shasta, Mt. Lassen, and the Trinity Alps, where wildlife is abundant and not frightened by the gentle, quiet stroke of a kayak paddle.

Join the Shasta Paddlers

A Group of Adventurers

Shasta Paddlers is a collection of paddlers of all abilities that explore regional waters and have fun! We provide support and encouragement and introduce people to the paddling lifestyle. We invite all types of paddlers—touring kayakers, fishing kayakers, whitewater kayakers, and stand-up paddleboarders. Our goal is to take the fear factor out of paddling and make it fun!

Shasta Paddlers enjoy watching the joy people get on the lake, playing in the surf, catching that next big fish, or running a rapid! Please join us for the events we have planned this summer. Events will be posted here regularly twice a month. Recaps of past events will be posted as well. If you have questions, please contact us.
