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 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.

Where to Paddle Like a Pirate

June is here and the solstice is just around the corner.  When the warm breezes blow and the grass grows green, you can find a place near you to “Paddle like a Pirate.”  CPA is a large club (more than 700 members), but we mostly get to see each other in our “home ports”—the Piracies, or chapters, scattered across the Chesapeake Bay region.  The June edition of THE PADDLER highlights the unique and different about each of the Piracies, and I encourage you to find your “crew” at one (or more) of them.
