Eco-tour: If you’re not interested in racing, but would like to be on the water, there will be a non-competitive Eco-tour paddle of the Weeks Bay area. This is the green line on the map. We will paddle to the Bald Eagle nest and back. There are options for shorter distances for those paddlers who do not want to go all the way to the nest.
PFDs (Lifejackets) are mandatory for all paddlers in the race divisions and the Eco-tour.

The 6th Annual Pelican Paddle was a great success. Thank you to all the paddlers and spectators who came out to enjoy a beautiful day on the water! A special thank you to the volunteers, including the awesome mothers and daughters from the National Charity League, and to the fine musicians of Blue Bicycle, and to Stephen Savage for capturing the event in photos. We are very grateful for a community of people who share in our mission to preserve and protect this special place.
