Since 1956 the Canoe Cruisers Association, with members from across the Greater Washington, DC area, has brought together kayakers and canoeists interested in paddling the Potomac River Basin and adjacent watersheds. We value diversity and welcome people at all levels of ability. We coordinate paddling trips, teach classes, promote river safety, host the annual CCA downriver race, and organize river access and water conservation efforts. Please join us—we look forward to paddling with you!
CCA and the Coronavirus
CCA plans to post no-shuttle trips on our website in June, and review the situation as time goes on. The Washington metro area is still requiring masks and social distancing. While it is easy to maintain the required social distancing while paddling, it is not possible when running a shuttle.
See our Trip Guidelines for information on staying safe while paddling during COVID-19.
