Memberships

Become a WIK member to improve your paddling skills, learn more about your paddling environment and build your community connections!

We’ve had many requests from you--our Whidbey neighbors--for more opportunities to get out on the water safely but also for ways to connect with others who want to paddle just like you. We’re happy to now offer two types of memberships for 2019. This is a great opportunity for the frequent paddler or someone trying to get more experience and learn more about the sport.

*This is a trial, so we only have a limited number of memberships available. We will be asking for feedback and may revise the program further next year.


PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US TO DISCUSS AND SIGN UP.

The fine print:

Float plans for any rentals outside of our monitored area must be pre-approved and should be appropriate for your skill level. We reserve the right to ask you to take one of our clinics to ensure that you have the appropriate skills.

Members are encouraged to reserve kayaks at least 24 hours in advance in order to ensure availability of their desired equipment and ideal timing. We will try to accommodate any immediate requests as our equipment and staffing allow.

Members must sign up for any social paddles at least 24 hrs in advance.
