Are you ready for the 4th annual No Wake Flotilla?
The Lower Shuswap Stewardship Society invites you to join us to paddle the lower stretches of the beautiful Shuswap River.
The No-Wake Flotilla celebrates the many non-motorized ways to enjoy the pristine Shuswap River and raises awareness of the effects of power boat wakes on both the shoreline ecosystem and other river users.
The event kicks off this year on Sunday, July 28th at 10:00 am from Grindrod Park boat launch. All non-motorized craft are welcome to join the fun. Row boats, stand up paddle boards, canoes and kayaks are all invited to participate in this mass paddling event.
A shuttle bus will be available for those paddlers who want to leave their vehicle at Mara Provincial Park. The bus will depart Mara Park at 9:40 am to take participants back to Grindrod Park in time for the launch. There will be a lunch and bathroom stop at Mara Hall at noon. Paddlers must bring their own lunches and life jackets. We are asking paddlers to regroup at Mara Hall after lunch to paddle the final stretch to Mara Provincial Park together.
Tubes, inflatable rafts and other floaties are not recommended for this stretch of the river.
Individuals looking for a shorter paddling adventure can join the group at Mara Hall at noon to paddle the lower stretch of the Shuswap River to Mara Provincial Park. The event will wrap up at Mara Park around 2:00 pm with refreshments on the beach by the boat launch.
