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.

The new colors are lime green, red, sapphire blue, electric blue, royal blue and  sage green.

These are high-performance, wicking shirts with the colorful CPA logo printed on the front.  Perfect for paddling.

Price:  $16.00 plus $5.75 mailing.  See sizing and ordering info here.


CPA has new TRIP RATINGS Read them and start thinking in terms of the new ratings for trips.


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.

Sturm und Drang in the Summer

Any of us could probably write the typical summer weather forecast for Chesapeake Bay a couple of years in advance:   South winds 5-10 knots, waves 1 foot, partly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms, wind and waves could be severe in the vicinity of thunderstorms, highs in the 90s, lows in the 70s. Humidity over 90 percent.

Don't forget your PFD, light and whistle!
