Event Description

Dinner & Night Kayaking at Lake Pleasant

Summer in Phoenix may be a bit hot during the day, but there's nothing like a warm summer night for a refreshing escape by the water! Tonight, we will try a fun, new event as we Kayak at NIGHT at Lake Pleasant on a GUIDED, 2-Hour Moonlight tour!

CARPOOL: Those that would like to carpool, please meet us in front of the Starbucks Meeting Location listed below between 5:30 PM and 5:45 PM. If you can't make it to the carpool in time, it's only a 30 minute drive out of the city (depending where you're coming from) so you can just meet us at the Marina.

PARKING FEE: Parking is $6 per car at the Marina, so please bring cash to cover that. Another reason to carpool if possible! :) No Tonto Pass is required for the marina, you can pay using cash or card at the entrance to the marina.

DINNER: We'll enjoy a light dinner along the way at Wildhorse West, 8415 West Carefree Highway, just south of AZ-74 and the marina.  From the carpool meeting location, take I-17 north and exit at Carefree Highway/ AZ-74, go west on AZ-74 for almost 7 miles, then left on North Lake Pleasant Parkway, then left again on Old Carefree Highway.  Wildhorse West has a simple inexpensive menu of burgers and stuff, and a full bar, and it's less than a 1/2 mile out of the way.  They will be expecting us around 6:15 and will be able to get us served quickly and with enough time to get to the marina, which is just about 5 miles further up the road.

KAYAKING: For the tour, we'll meet at 7:30 PM SHARP near the water by the two blue wet ports just outside of the restaurant. We'll paddle out of the marina and into Honeymoon Cove and back on a 2-hour guided tour!

  • WHAT TO BRING: For the tour, we'll get glow sticks to light up the group, but please bring your own headlamps and/or flashlights to light your way as well. You''ll most likely want to bring towels and swimming gear so you can enjoy the water if you choose to jump in! Comfortable shoes or water shoes are recommended. Remember to bring cash to tip your guide and carpool drivers, and keep valuables at HOME or in your car (not on the water)! Don't forget a waterproof camera if you have one, to capture all the fun!

IMPORTANT: Please note in your RSVP comments if you plan to carpool with the group, and attend dinner or not so we know what reservations to make and who will be showing up at the carpool location. 



Single Kayak: Only $40 per person. This cost does not include gratuity for your guide or money for your carpool driver if you have one. Please bring a bit of cash to tip both your carpool driver and the tour guide. Sorry, double kayaks are now sold out....only singles are available.


If you are not planning to carpool or join us for dinner, please be at the Lake Pleasant Marina no later than 7:30 PM. 

Hope to see you there for this great event!
