Moonlight Paddle

Home  /  Public Paddles  /  Moonlight Paddle

Enjoy paddling under a nearly full moon on a rare Friday evening paddle. We launch at the Bomier landing in De Pere, pass through the De Pere Lock and paddle on past downtown Green Bay and land at the GB Metro landing near Bay Beach. 

Not a paddler? Come along on the River Tyme. The diesel-powered Fox River tour boat has scheduled a special trip to join us on this paddle. It's a great opportunity for non-paddling friends and relatives.

Joining Us?

Please let us know! Tap the button to notify us. It helps us plan but doesn't commit you to the trip. You will register and pay at the launch. Paddles cost $10 per paddler; under 16 free with an adult. De Pere charges us $5 per boat to launch so we'd appreciate you adding that to your fee. Make registration go faster. Fill out your ACA Adult Waiver of ACA Youth Waiver in advance and bring it to the landing. This is a good time to become a member of NEWP for $10 per year.
