Open kayaking and stand up paddleboarding

Take advantage of our Olympic-sized pool and informal instruction to hone in your paddling skills and learn new techniques. Both recreational kayaks and stand up paddleboards are available.

Times and dates

During the fall and spring, open kayaking is held on Tuesday nights from 8PM to 10PM. We do not hold sessions during the summer.

  • Fall 2017: September 5 through December 5.
  • Spring 2018: January 23 to May 1. No session 3/27 due to spring break.


Open kayaking is FREE for students and members of our facility, and all boats, PFDs (life jackets), and paddles are provided. For guests and non-members, the cost is $10 per session or $80 per semester. Passes may be purchased at either the SRWC or ONAT front desk.

Personal boats

Personal kayaks are permitted as long as they are clean and free of debris. After you are signed in, personal boats may be transported through the side entrance of the ONAT pool next to Parking Lot 10. SRWS staff can direct you to these doors.
