Open Water Rowing in a Stunning Location

Experience the transition to summer and the longest day of the year DWR-style! We'll welcome the change of seasons with a row out in Belfast Bay! All skill-levels welcome. You can try rowing or be a passenger--please note this on your booking form. Light refreshments will be served to compliment your row. Bring a solstice sentiment to share: a poem, a physical object or even a song! The Summer Solstice Row happens on the day of the Solstice, Thursday, June 20. Three sessions are offered: in the morning at 8:30 and 10:30am and at the end of the day, at sunset. Total on the water time is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. This row can be booked privately for 2-3 people or as mixed group of individuals. A unique and memorable experience to share with friends/family or your sweetie, ages 10 and up; under 14 with adult supervision. Pricing is $100 per person. Special pricing options available: two people for $190 and 3 people for $285. 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 to be worn on the dock and in the boat. DWR will provide these--however, if you have your own PFD, please bring it. Dress appropriately for the weather. Temperatures can vary this time of year. Wear comfortable synthetic, silk or wool layers and footwear appropriate for the conditions. Bring a jacket if its chilly and water to stay hydrated. Sunscreen is advised during daytime rows, as well as sunglasses. A hat can also be helpful. WEATHER AND DWR CANCELLATION POLICY: Safety is DWR's top priority. Rows are weather dependent. DWR will go out in a variety of weather conditions, including light to moderate wind, some chop or swell, fog, rain and snow. DWR's client cancellation policy applies--please review. Look forward to celebrating the Summer Solstice with you!
