Event Details

Community monthly paddle meetup to explore waterways in Matagorda, Texas. Bring your own kayak or SUP, life jacket, fishing poles & license (if you want to fish), 360 night light REQUIRED (sunset will be at 7:30pm), plenty of water, sunscreen & bugspray and your friends & family! A cart or kayak dolly is recommend for this site. If you’re bringing your own boat no need to sign up as this is an open & free event, just be ready to launch at 6pm.

If you don’t have your own kayak you can rent one (comes with lifejacket, paddle, & 360 light) from MAC for $10 off the regular half-day rental rate. Be sure to reserve in advance as we will only be bringing enough kayaks for those with advance registration. Use the ticket link in the invite to reserve a kayak at the discounted rate.

For our November Community Paddle we will be paddling Parker’s Cut (Coordinates: 28.61821, -95.97308). Parker’s Cut is a great place for fishing, birding or just a peaceful paddle. Put in on the Colorado River near the LCRA sign. Make a short paddle across the river to the earth dam in Parker’s Cut. Stay to the left of the fence as this provides the easiest path for portaging your kayak. The portage is approx 100 yards to the bayous of West Bay. Be aware that the earth dam is public property but all other dry land in this area is private property. For this community paddle we will be bringing carts/kayak dollies to help get the kayaks across.

Join us at Plugger’s Bar for a cold beverage after the paddle!

Getting There:
From Matagorda drive south on FM 2031 across the bridge. Go past all the houses on the Colorado River. Shortly you will see a pull off on the side of the road just in front of the blue Matagorda LCRA sign.
