JOIN US FOR PADDLE FOR THE BORDER 2019!

The 16th annual Paddle for the Border event will be held on Saturday, May 4th, 2019. This popular canoe/kayak trek allows participants to paddle 7.5 miles along the historic Dismal Swamp Canal. Boaters will launch at the Dismal Swamp State Park canal bridge in South Mills, NC and paddle at their own pace to Ballahack Road Boat Ramp in Chesapeake, VA.

Open registration runs from January 2nd to April 5th, 2019 or full capacity. The fee is $40 per person and includes a “grab-and-go” breakfast, picnic lunch at the end of the journey and your choice of a T-shirt or hat. Late registration (April 6th – until full) requires participants to register online only and add a $10 late fee. This event is limited to 375 paddlers. Spots fill up quick, so hurry and reserve your place!

Paddlers can register online at www.cityofchesapeake.net/paddle and by mail-in, walk-in or drop-off. A registration form and signed waiver must be submitted. To obtain registration packets call 252-771-8333.

The event is a joint effort by North Carolina’s Dismal Swamp State Park, Chesapeake Parks, Recreation and Tourism, Camden County TDA, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center.
