Event Description

2019 Enfield Fishing Creek Paddle

Enfield is one of the oldest towns in North Carolina, founded in 1740!  Along its border flows beautiful Fishing Creek, where sharks teeth and whale bones have been found.  Enjoy all this history by taking a day to relax and unwind in pristine surroundings as you float past rock formations under ancient tree canopies or make it a day for team building and fun with your fellow employees. 

The 2019 Enfield Fishing Creek Paddle will begin this year at beautiful historic Bellamy’s Mill travelling approximately 5 miles along the Creek.  The paddle committee has partnerships with private landowners for access to Fishing Creek which makes this a very special opportunity to experience something few have ever seen. 

The Downtown Enfield Restoration and Preservation Committee (DERP) invites you to participate in the 9th Annual Enfield Fishing Creek Paddle. Registration is $30 and covers morning refreshments plus lunch at the Mill.  This is a great paddle for both beginners and experienced paddlers.  You can get more information at 252-445-2234 or at www.derpserves.org where you can print out your registration form and pay online.

 

The cost of registration is $30 or register 4 people for $100.  Canoes are available to rent for $35 and kayaks for $25. All rentals come with a life jacket. Paddlers are welcome to bring their own vessel. Dogs are welcome if paddlers bring their own vessels. The paddle is around 5 miles and takes about 2.5 to 3 hours. Lunch will be provided after Paddlers come in off the creek.

 

All ages welcome! Paddlers under age 18 must have a guardian present to complete the liability waiver. 

 

Rain date is Saturday, June 9th.
