Explore the natural wonders of 235 California’s flat water lakes, reservoirs, harbors, bays and slow moving rivers. From easy afternoon paddles to extended trips, Paddling California takes canoeists and kayakers on journeys through the most spectacular landscapes in California.
Sit back and take in spellbinding lakes, with hidden hideaways tucked deep in the forested hills, as the sun slips behind the horizon and the moon climbs into the evening sky. Twinkling lights and shadows dance on the water as the sun sets and the moon rises. The rustle of critters settling down at nightfall awakens the senses, as you paddle quietly by, soaking in twilight’s peaceful enchantment, in a romantic moonlight adventure!
