The Chesapeake Paddlers Association (CPA) provides an out let for current paddlers or individuals interested in paddling to connect, learn, and get out on the water. The CPA offers trips, classes, workshops, and other activities. Trips range from basic day paddles for beginners to multi-day kayak touring for experienced yakkers. They also host a discussion forum for paddlers to share paddling stories, ask questions about repair and maintenance, and post meetup information. The CPA also strives to educate individuals on safe sea kayaking.
