Look at Boon Kang’s smile, he had so much fun at PA Paddle Fest!
Tiring too, but a sense of achievement.
We had signed up for PA PaddleFest at Anchorvale CC, I thought it would be cool to expose kids to kayaking, and at a neighbourhood river.
There are up to 20 other kayaks in our group expedition, most are newbies.
Boon Kang went with me on the expedition (about 1.5 hours including rest), Boon Yee and Xin went for the tryouts (30 to 45 minutes)
It was a novelty for us to paddle under the bridge (TPE expressway) or so close to the mangroves.
I have always wanted to bring the kids kayaking in MacRitchie or any other reservoirs, so glad I could join them!
Hello any otters out there?
If we have more time, Kang and me might even row up to Punggol Waterway point or Punggol Dam 🙂
Punggol Dam (a) and Waterway Point (b). Do pop by our cycling trip up Seletar North too.
Paddle Fun 🙂
Everyone seem to be very shy, but our clothes are always soaked from non-stop splashing haha :p
Obstacle course, abseiling, rappelling and more carnival activities to engage families.
Video (Video Link) : Paddle Fun, kids love kayaking 🙂
Clear blue sky, cool water, we cannot wait for the next water venture. Do pop by Fanpage PA WaterVenture for the next event on the 24th April Marina Bay 🙂
Addition tips :
– PA Water Venture kayak tryout events are free
– Future events will be posted on PA Water-Venture Fanpage, next one 24th April.
– Do bring a bottle of mineral water with you, we were quite thirsty after one hour of paddeling
– Apply generous amount of suntan lotion, cool down by splashing water
Our inaugural kayaking was at Anchorvale Community Centre:
