What you'll do

You will kayak the Monksville Reservoir including several places that are not publicly advertised. The trip takes place right after sunset so we can see the full moon and other astrological events. You will become a team member of the paddling community. Some prior kayaking experience is preferred but not required, and beginners may find kayaking strenuous. Participants need to be comfortable navigating in deep water. Your safety is our number one priority and we comply with all COVID-19 requirements. All you need to bring is a willing attitude and a smile. Prepare to get wet. You will see the Monksville Reservoir and the night sky like you've never seen it before (water proof camera recommended for photos). The reservoir is located away from most ambient light, so the night sky is brilliant. I adjust the float plan depending on weather conditions.

What an amazing one of a kind experience this was! I enjoyed every single moment of this! From the beginning Joe was extremely accommodating and made me feel like I was having a conversation with a friend. The location is magical and secluded; everything that you would want if you are looking for an intimate soulful experience. The group is small so you don’t feel like you are in a group tour guided event. Make sure to bring a change of cloths and shoes if you don’t have or wear water shoes as you will get slightly wet if the kayak is wet inside. Joe thank you so much for everything and I will Be making this a full moon ritual with you! See you soon!
