Community Paddle for SUP Paddlers with Portland Paddle @ Portland Paddle
Jul 25 @ 7:30 am – 8:30 am
Community Paddle for SUP Paddlers with Portland Paddle @ Portland Paddle | Portland | Maine | United States
Once again we’ll be hosting our early morning group paddles during the summer of 2024!
The SUP paddles are on Thursdays, from 7:30am to 8:30am (Kayaking is on Tuesdays at 7:30am)
WHEN: June – August, 7:30am (arrive early so the group can launch at 7:30)
WHERE: Portland Paddle’s site at the East End Beach (look for our signs near the kayak racks)
WHO: Anyone who is confident and comfortable paddling a SUP on Casco Bay
COST: Free for Portland Paddle members and those with their own vessel ; $25 rental fee for others who need to rent a SUP.
Want to join? If you need to rent a boat of board visit our website to reserve one! Enter your member code if you’re a member. If you’re using your own SUP, there’s no need to sign up in advance.
**Important Details**
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so you can be ready to paddle a few minutes before the scheduled start time
It’s free to join with your own SUP. For members and those renting, we ask that you make a rental booking at least 8 hours in advance so we know how many SUPs to prepare and are able to get on the water on time.
You do NOT need a reservation to join if you are using your own vessel; you can just show up. Please still arrive early so that the group can get on the water promptly at 7:30.
These paddles are led by our staff, but they are not guided trips and you should not join if you need instruction or assistance in order to participate. Please consider taking one of our lessons or joining a tour if you are new to SUP. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their own safety. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support as you paddle. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.
A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Facebook page.
Looking for an evening social paddling event? Check out our Monday night racing in July and August!

RE-SOUNDING HISTORY @ Fort Gorges Portland, ME 04101
Jul 27 @ 3:15 pm – 6:15 pm
RE-SOUNDING HISTORY @ Fort Gorges Portland, ME 04101 | Portland | Maine | United States

A place & plant based sound meditation in Aucocisco/Fort Gorges.

Join Hogfish, Friends of Fort Gorges, and the Wild Seed Project for an event like no other this summer.

Beauty is often one of the first invitations to connect. How could the beauty of a summer afternoon in Aucocisco, on modern day Fort Gorges, with gorgeous meditative indigenous and non-indigenous collaborative music weaving in the sounds of nearby plants, while receiving gentle hands-on-healing help you to connect? What would happen if we all took a moment together to allow our eardrums and our hearts to be moved by the beauty of the sound of all living beings coming together to make a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts? How can we re-sound history in a place like Fort Gorges for a better future?

Enjoy a boat ride across Aucocisco, present day Casco Bay, and quickly arrive at Fort Gorges. Stroll into the courtyard, put down a yoga mat or picnic blanket or sit in the grass, and invite yourself to listen to the ocean waves and call of the birds, while hands-on-healers offer their assistance to leave your cares behind and enter the presence of the sensory world. The musical offerings will begin with Hogfish artist-in-residence and Wabanaki singer and dancer Isaac Syliboy who will be joined by Hogfish artist-in-residence and composer/bassist Evan Premo for 40 minutes of instrumental loop-based improvisation for meditation and deep listening, where Evan weaves in music produced live from the electrical impulses of native plants selected by the Wild Seed Project.

At the end of the meditation, spend time exploring the island on your own or on a guided tour, go for a swim, or continue to listen to the reverberations in the space and in your soul.

RAIN DATE

Sunday, July 28th
