Web links for the Merrimack Valley Paddlers in Merrimack, New Hampshire


We are a group of paddlers who informally paddle together on a regular basis, and organize training trips on rivers ranging from an easy Class II (for beginners) to difficult Class IV and more (for advanced paddlers looking to hone their technique). We also maintain a fleet of rental boats, including Rubber Duckies, that club members may rent for only $10 a day fully outfitted.

We assist new paddlers in learning the skills needed to both paddle safely and have fun! This includes correct selection of a boat, safety equipment, paddle, and other gear. We also will help teach you the basic skills needed for your first whitewater experience, including how to get in and out of a kayak easily, how to do a wet exit (getting out of the boat while it is upside down), and learning to roll.

We conduct free rolling sessions in the summer for people looking to learn to roll their kayak, run rolling sessions in local pools at cost in the winter, hold an annual Pig Roast and Rodeo for the entertainment of all, and are very active in the monitoring of local rivers and how the relicensing of dams on these rivers impact us all.
