Kayaking in Lake Chapala

Post New Topic

Hi all,
I finally arrived in Chapala last Tuesday! I am having a great time so far and am blessed with a great airbnb host and a place right off the malecon.
I understand there is a group of kayakers that goes out on the lake regularly. I would be very interested in joining that group if there are rental kayaks available. Can someone please help me get in contact with them?
Thanks in advance,

Kathy

Luckily, you are located on the malecon. The Kayak Club leaves from in front of Maria Isabel's Restaurant so you are close. Here is some info on where to meet them. Just head to the beach at the appropriate time and start talking to the people launching boats.

Our recommendation is that you meet the Club members after our Thursday morning paddle at Maria Isabel Restaurant in Ajijic at 11am. Then arrangements can be made for you to go kayaking, as a Guest, with one of the members at some future meetup date, either Thursday or Saturday 8:00am or on Mondays at 3pm. These are our regularly scheduled group paddles by this Kayak Club. All of our kayaks are for the exclusive use of our Kayak Club membership and their Guests, there is NO rental equipment available.

New members would be expected to be able to swim, be familiar with wearing a PFD, and have a general comfort level on the water from having some experience kayaking, canoeing, or sailing. This group places safety first in all our outings. This Meetup website is designed primarily for scheduling attendance and communication with the Lake Chapala Kayak Club's membership.

The Lake Chapala Kayak Club was formed in 2010 by a group of kayak enthusiasts. Guests are welcome but must be accompanied by a member for a nominal fee. For further information please attend either a luncheon at Marie Isabel on Thursdays at 11am or on Saturdays at 11am after our weekly Meetup paddles. Also we've added a Monday paddle starting at 3pm for guests and potential new members.

Also here is some info on fees:
2500 pesos per year, 4000 for couple, for two years, 600 pesos per year after that.

1000 peso one time fee to rent space if you have your own kayak.

If you are interested in trying out kayaking we charge 150 pesos per day. You will need to be a guest of a member (this is never a problem as we are all happy to host new people). The fee includes use of the kayak, paddle, and vest. The member will also stay with you to guide you and help you. If you decide to become a member we also require that you take a safety test in the event you fall out of the kayak.

As stated previously we get together for lunch at Maria Isabel on Thurs. around 11:30. Good time to meet members and inspect the equipment.

Hope you are enjoying your stay in Ajijic!
