This Full Moon Kayak Tour Is The Most Magical Thing You’ll Do All Summer In Arizona
Not only is sunset and its subsequent moonlit glow the most magical time of day here in Arizona, but it’s also by far the coolest – especially during the warmer months. Go Paddle AZ on Lake Pleasant has combined two of our favorite activities – kayaking and stargazing – into one epic summer event. Check it out:
Go Paddle AZ offers an ethereal moonlight kayak excursion on Lake Pleasant, and it's the perfect way to kick off summer.
Arizona is magical any time of day, but there’s something about sunset that just amplifies the invigorating buzz.
The tour begins at 7 p.m., giving you plenty of time to witness an iconic Arizona sunset.
Brilliant sapphire, pink, and amber hues form a colorful blanket overhead, reflecting on the water for an unforgettable evening.
About 40 minutes into your paddle, you'll dock at a remote shoreline.
S'mores will be made over a blazing fire, creating a classic summertime scene. Gather up a few ghost stories to tell as you sit around the fire beneath the pitch-dark Lake Pleasant night sky.
Kayak rentals cost $50 for singles and $75 for tandems, but if you bring your own kayak, the tour costs just $20.
Please arrive at the marina 30 minutes prior to departure and bring a headlamp or flashlight.
The next moonlight paddles are planned for July 12th and 13th, 2019.
Set aside about 2.5 hours for the entire experience; 30 minutes for hanging out on shore and the rest of the time spent paddling on Lake Pleasant.
Go Paddle AZ also offers stand-up paddleboard rentals and guided yoga sessions.
Test your balance and quiet your mind simultaneously as the gentle current rocks you side to side.
Address: 8708 West Harbor Boulevard, Peoria, AZ 85383
Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily
