Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location

Celebrate the return of summer out on the water with this special row. On this longest day of the year, we'll row out into Belfast Bay or up the Passagassawakeag River in the dory boat Sorciere and embrace the change of seasons, where light and warmth are abundant! Refreshing herbal tea and a snack will be served. The Solstice Row will happen on the day of the Summer Solstice, June 21. Four sessions are offered on this day: in the morning at 7:15am, 9am and 11am and at the end of day for a sunset row at 7pm. Total on the water time is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. This row is for individuals, pairs and trios, ages 8 and up. This row may include a mixed group of people and can also be booked as a private group (up to 3 people). The price is $95 per person. Your row begins with a safety talk, reviewing the different parts of the boat, going over rowing commands and getting seated properly and comfortably. Lifejackets (PFDs) are required in the boat. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own PFD, please bring it. Dress appropriately for the weather (translation: layers!). Temps vary this time of year and the wind can be brisk. Wear comfortable synthetic, silk or wool clothing clothing, wind resistant outerwear and footwear appropriate for the conditions. Bring water to stay hydrated--and a snack, if you'd like.
