Join Salty Dog and crew as we paddle out to our monthly Full Moon Paddle for charity on Wednesday, September 30th from 7PM – 9PM in Boca Raton. This is one of the most popular full moon paddles in South Florida. We paddle the intracoastal waters of Boca Raton and anchor up in the middle of Lake Boca in commemoration of our late volunteer, Sean “Ace” O’Connor. This paddle is perfect for first-timers since the water is so calm!
Why simply paddle when you can paddle for a purpose?
We will be dropping in at the Boat Ramp at Silver Palm Park at 7PM and the full moon is set to rise at 7PM, so the moon should be rising as we arrive at the sandbar in the middle of the salt water lake. If you arrive after 7PM meet us on the water!
There is no cost to join if you have your own board or kayak, but you must have a PFD (life jacket) and flashlight at night. We also recommend using an ankle leash in remembrance of our late volunteer – Andres Pombo. You WILL NOT be permitted to join if you do not have the safety equipment required by law (since we are a water-sports organization).
Suggested donation if bringing your own board (BYOB) is $5.
Pricing: Free – $65 (Pre-Sale ends 9/29)
100% of all profits from this paddle will be donated directly to our emergency fund for critically injured rescue dogs in South Florida (we promise not to keep any portion to cover expenses).
