About the event
What you need to know about BBK!
To make this a great experience, please read so that you know what to anticipate and how to make it a fun family event.
Food - Come hungry! Food vendors will be onsite for food and drink purchase. There will be vegan/vegetarian options. Food will be available until gone or around 6 pm.
What to bring - blankets, umbrellas, sunscreen, towels, hats to protect from sun, toys for little ones, plastic ziplock bag to protect phone from water, etc. Wear clothing and shoes (crocs, flip flops, etc) that you don't mind getting wet (gym shoes are not the best gear to kayak in). Don't forget to bring patience as it will be a wait for kayaks. If you have a a watercraft please feel free to bring it for yourself.
Kayaking - every person using any watercraft provided by Black to the Land must wear a lifevest (no exception). Rides will be 45 mins. You are free to go again but only after everyone has had an opportunity to get on the water.
Parking - if parking fills up in one lot, there is another parking lot that you can walk through a small trail to get to event. We will have signs to guide you. Follow the music and happy voices! Absolutely no parking in areas (on side of the road) that are not marked for parking. They will be checking regularly.
Photos/Videos - by attending this event, you acknowledge that we will be taking photos /videos which will be shared publicly (websites, social media, flyers, etc). Don't worry we always make sure we post the best pictures!
Liability - a liability form must be signed for all participants getting on kayaks.
I've never kayaked, will there be someone to help me?
Yes, we will have instructors providing tips on how to navigate/paddle and where to go.
I can't swim, can I still kayak?
While it's nice to know how to swim, it's isn't a prerequisite to kayaking. This is why we require lifevest. We will have safety people and trained staff on the water making sure everyone is safe. There is also a shallow area near the "beach" site that is perfect for those who aren't ready to paddly away from the shore.
What age is suitable for kayaking?
Babies ages 0 to 15 months are not ideal to put in kayak with someone, however, above that to 6 years of age, kids can ride with parents in a tandem kayak or in a solo kayak sitting in front of the parent. The most important thing about age appropriateness, is their maturity level and how well they listen. Only a parent/guardian can make that call, so it's up to you to ensure safety. For kids under 15 must be accompanied by an adult at all times on the water (no exception). We want to keep everyone safe!
This is a non-refundable event unless cancelled by the organization.
