Guided Kayak Tour with the Coharie Tribe Community
March 30 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Join members of the Coharie community on a day journey including a guided kayak tour on their Great Coharie Creek, as well as a community lunch. Participants will meet at the Coharie Tribe’s Cultural Center near Clinton, NC. River shuttle, lunch and all activities are included.
The Great Coharie Creek has deep cultural significance to the Coharie people; and as a result, they strive to protect and maintain access to this threatened river for recreation, subsistence, and cultural uses. With the goal of sharing their culture with discerning visitors, and to explore river-based livelihoods for their youth, Coharie people are now welcoming visitors in partnership with People First Tourism, an organization affiliated with NC State University, that helps travelers connect in deep and genuine ways with local communities, and Frog Hollow Outdoors, a resource for canoe & kayak education, the exploration of nature, relaxation, adventure, self-discovery, and a greater overall connection with the outdoors.
The event will run rain or shine, with activities adapted according to river and weather conditions. Registered participants will receive advice on how to dress appropriately for the event, as well as specific driving directions.
The ticket price includes equipment rental, but participants can also use their own kayak and equipment.
