Sunset Kayak – Watch the colors of the sunset with the reflection of the water! @ Jordan Lake
Sep 5 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for a sunset kayak adventure! We will meet at the launch point 1 hour before sunset, just in time to review guidelines and equipment. Then, we will have a leisurely paddle, keeping an eye out for wildlife while we watch the sunset. Total time on the water is 2 hours!

I have been leading outdoor adventures for the past four years. My husband, Bryan, has been in the outdoor industry for over 15 years now! We love getting outdoors on bikes, kayaks, or even by foot with our pups by our side!
