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.

Pool sessions have been posted for Williamsburg and Fairlands. At this point, availability seems to be limited at pools around the area. Check here for any dates or efforts to coordinate indoor pool sessions.

The Votes have been counted & congratulations to the 2015 Club officers.


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.

The 2014 Season is over...Except for the Holiday Party!
Running a sea kayak club is a bit like running a sea kayak:  It’s the unexpected that can get you in real trouble.  The 2014 Annual Meeting was scheduled for a woodsy area, the Moyaone Community Center in Accokeek, MD, courtesy ofMike Cohn and Linda Witkin.  Everything seemed to be in order as I rounded the last curve on Sunday morning to help prepare for the meeting…except the foot-thick tree lying across the phone line and entirely blocking the road!
