Home - The Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc.

The CPA offers many diversified activities and benefits providing a way for people to safely enjoy sea kayaking within the Chesapeake Bay region.

We've periodically been having some website issues lately where links aren't always working. We are working on troubleshooting these issues and arranging a permanent fix. In the interim, you can go to the CPA calendar by clicking here .  If you need to go to the piracy info page, click here
ATTENTION all paddlers who enjoy the South River! Effective NOW- the Pirates will be starting a new tradition of kayak- roving to new launches within the County and to try out new creeks and coves along the Bay. Our new launches are part of the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation & Parks string of new pocket parks- check out the locations: http://www.aacounty.org/RecParks/launch/index.cfm#Sites. These sites have car-top launches and give basic and decent access to the water...
We have new CPA trip waivers. All participants in CPA sponsored on-water trips and events must sign a legal release form. Trip & event leaders are responsible for collecting signed releases & for returning them to the Club Secretary. Failure to collect, save & forward these waivers may invalidate trip leader coverage under our liability policy.
The CPA has a dedicated space for paddlers seeking or selling gear.
Mix and mingle with fellow paddlers. Talk about kayaking events, paddling trips, gear, and much, much more.

Now Is the Summer of Our Content

To paraphrase Shakespeare, now is our time to get out and paddle. The days are long, the air and water are warm and inviting, and the pace of life slows, even if just a little, to let us enjoy our sport to its fullest. No matter what else is going on, I urge you to get out on the Chesapeake waters NOW!

Don't forget your PFD, light and whistle!
