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.

Behind the Scenes

Many people think that “running” a paddling club can’t be any big deal: A bunch of people who like paddling get together and do paddling trips. Sounds simple enough, and when any such organization is “young”, that may be all there is to it. However, volunteer organizations grow over time and, inevitably, grow a bit more complex. Here are some of the things that go on “behind the scenes” to keep the Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc. going.
