The Canoe Cruisers Association of Greater Washington, DC, founded in 1956, has members from Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia and other nearby regions. We are a kayak and canoe club whose main purpose is to unite persons interested in paddling the Potomac River Basin and adjacent watersheds.  We teach classes, promote river safety, and participate in river access and watershed conservation efforts.

 CCA and the Coronavirus

CCA plans to post no-shuttle trips on our website in June, and review the issue in July. 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 the May-June issue of the Cruiser for a list of no-car-shuttle trips and tips on staying safe while paddling during the epidemic.



 From tranquil flatwater to raging whitewater, we paddle it all.
