Our first event is a day trip to Double Bayou with optional overnight (RSVP recommended) on Saturday, February 11th. The decision to stay overnight will be made by individual boat crews based on weather and mosquito prevalence.

Please RSVP by email so we know how many boats to expect. Please include your name, boat name, and a contact number in case the trip is cancelled at the last minute.

Distance from Kemah entrance to Double Bayou entrance is about 18 nautical miles, plus roughly 4 miles of bayou to the tie-up point at relatively low speed. (Allow 45 minutes across East Bay plus 30 minutes in the bayou).
