Name: Christmas Caroling by Kayak 2017 Item#: CAR Price/ea:
You will be charged a flat $40/person, no shipping or tax! Saturday Dec 9TH, 2017, 6-8pm, NWOC, with the generous help of the Lake Union Houseboat Community, organizes Caroling by Kayak tours to benefit the Seattle Children's Home and the Homestead Community Land Trust. We paddle our kayaks to houseboat parties, where we spend twenty minutes or so (seated in our kayaks) singing some of everyone's old favorite carols. Don't worry, you don't need to be a good singer, just game! Carolers pay $40 each for this unique experience, all of which goes to the above charities. NWOC provides kayaks, gear, instructor/escorts, and basically everything else including song sheets but excluding voice lessons. No special gear is required to enjoy the trip, but it is important to dress for the weather. Paddling in December can range from the high 20’s to 50°, dry to drizzly to downright rainy.
