About Our Kayaks

Sound Kayakers Club

Sustainable Living Practices

Welcome to Sound Kayakers, a club for sea kayakers from Connecticut and New York who paddle on Long Island Sound.

Sound Kayakers organizes meetings & trips, rescue clinics, camping trips, and other events to develop the kayaking skills and seamanship of club members. We operate under the "common adventure model," with consensus/team decision-making on club trips.

For up-to-date info on trips, join our Facebook or Meetup groups.

Other Regional Clubs:
There are several clubs in the region. Ours is one of two with a primary focus on the western Sound. For example, Connyak best serves sea kayakers in the eastern part of the state, with some trips in the western end. KALM, The Kayakers Alliance of Larchmont and Mamaroneck, started in 2005. The Yonkers Paddling & Rowing Club is based in Westchester County, with a boat house on the Hudson River. The Cold Spring Kayak Club also promotes paddling on the Hudson River. RI Canoe/Kayak Association serves Rhode Island.
