Just 45 minutes from Nashville, enjoy kayaking in a new way - by moonlight and under the stars on the gentle flowing Bledsoe Creek in Castalian Springs. Your guide is Leslie Dunn, an American Canoe Association Certified Kayak Instructor. Leslie's taught new paddlers and led Moonlight Paddles at her waterfront home on Bledsoe Creek for eight years. As dusk settles in, we head for the kayaks. Everything you'll need is provided including kayak, life jacket, dry bag for your phone, headlamp and light for the kayak. We'll drift downstream a couple miles, turn around and paddle back. We're far enough away from the city that there is no light pollution. You'll hear owls and other nocturnal animals as we float past Bledsoe Creek State Park. Don't be surprised when fish thump the bottom of your kayak - they're attracted to the lights! We'll paddle a total of four miles. This experience is good for new and experienced kayakers including children age 8+ who can swim. There's plenty of free parking. This relaxing, memorable evening lasts about three hours.
I'm an American Canoe Association Certified Kayak Instructor and have kayaked for 19 years. I've taught almost 1,600 students in ten years. Your safety is a top priority! I'm the owner of Nashville Kayak Lessons with over 4,000 members. I wrote, "Quiet Water Kayaking - A Beginner's Guide" based on my lessons - the book is available on Amazon. If you've never kayaked before, I'll be happy to give you a mini-lesson prior to launching so you can relax and enjoy the float.

The entire event begins and ends at the waterfront home of Leslie Dunn who lives in an farm house almost 100 years old surrounded by forty-three acres of undeveloped land that is home to a herd of cows, two donkeys and two dogs. Across the water is Bledsoe Creek State Park.
