10th Annual Great Drift Paddle
Saturday, April 18, 2020

Join us as we celebrate the 10th Annual Great Drift Paddle on the Dog River Scenic Blueway. This time participants in the FREE event will launch from and return to Dog River Park (formerly Lusher/Navco Park).

The official launch will begin at 1 pm following a required launch/safety meeting. Paddlers will head north on the river to a predesignated site then return for the traditional post-Drift party. Bring your own canoe, kayak or SUP (no motorized vessels) or rent one from Sunshine Canoes (251-367-4144). Reserve early. On-site help available at noon.

Participants are encouraged to attend the annual Post Drift Party held immediately following the event at Dog River Park.

The Dog River Scenic Blueway is a project of Dog River Clearwater Revival promoting stewardship of the Dog River Watershed, cultural and historical awareness, and recreational opportunities for paddling enthusiasts and recreational boaters in Mobile’s urban river and its tributaries.
