Description

Lake Tappan Paddle Day
Saturday, August 3, 2019

Brought to you through a partnership between Hackensack Riverkeeper and SUEZ Water, Lake Tappan Paddle Day is a family-friendly day of paddling on Lake Tappan Reservoir in Old Tappan, NJ. The event supports Hackensack Riverkeeper’s mission to protect, preserve, and restore the Hackensack River.

The Paddle Day consists of four paddling sessions. Paddlers are encouraged to bring their own boat or rent one from Riverkeeper’s fleet! You can choose a single-person kayak, a tandem (two-person) kayak, or canoe. Space is limited; paddlers are strongly encouraged to register online.

Address and Parking:
SUEZ fishing gate off Washington Ave. North, near the intersection of Little Mountain Rd. Old Tappan, NJ
Parking will be inside the gate, along the access road. The access road is one way, and all paddlers will exit onto Ogle Road. Signs will guide you.


Cost:
Riverkeeper kayak/canoe: $30 per paddler
Your own kayak/canoe: $30 per vessel

Schedule:
Check-in begins 30 min. prior to each session. Please plan to arrive early to allow enough time to park, check-in, and receive your materials.

Paddle A: 8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
OWN BOAT: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Paddle B: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Catch-and-Release Fishing from kayaks is permitted, with a valid fishing license.

Weather: Lake Tappan Paddle Day will only be cancelled for persistent rain and/or thunder and lightning. In the event we are forced to postone the paddle day to our scheduled rain date of Saturday, August 10th, registrants will receive an email on Friday, August 2nd. If we are unable to hold the event on either date, registrants will receive a voucher, which can be used at either of our paddling centers or at a 2020 Reservoir Paddle Series event.

Rules and Age Restrictions:
All canoes must have two adult paddlers.
Children 5 and over may ride as a passenger in the center of a canoe, paddled by two adults.
Children 8 and over can paddle in the front seat of a tandem kayak with a parent or guardian in the back.
Children 12 and over may paddle a single kayak, if accompanied by an adult paddling in a separate vessel while on the water.

All necessary equipment and life vests (PFDs) will be provided for those using Hackensack Riverkeeper boats.
All paddlers must wear PFD at all times.

All boats must be washed at our wash station before entering the reservoir, to ensure the prevention of bio-invasive hitchhikers.
