Paddle Shack Re-Locates!
New On Water Location
News Article Spring 2013
 

  Join us for increased fun and paddling opportunities at our new on water location. 

Along the northwest shore of the Patcong Creek just off of 5012 Ocean Heights Avenue in Egg Harbor Township, behind 24/7 Bait and Tackle stands the big red barn and new home of Paddle Shack!

With increased interior and exterior display areas, as well as direct on water access to one of the best natural tidal creeks in New Jersey, the Shack is now better positioned to help you have the best paddle sports experiences ever!

Our expectations of your enjoyment are reflected in our new phone number:
609 - 653 - 4FUN
Our original number 609-909-5250 will remain active, but we know the new number will live up to both our and your expectations of FUN, enjoyable and safe paddling experiences.

Among the features of our new location are:

  • Increased Sales & Display Areas
    Our larger interior display area will house all our paddling gear plus a our most popular kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards - no more standing in the rain to look at our best boats - Yes!!!
     
  • Kayaks, Canoes, Stand Up Paddle Boards
    As always, we will offer a wide selection of boats we know are best suited for safe and enjoyable paddling in our abundant surrounding South Jersey fresh & tidal waters.
     
  • Test Paddles - the best way to see if you fit that new boat!
    Our new on water location with direct access to Patcong Creek allows test paddling your prospective purchase on a daily basis without the hassle of waiting until a specific event day.
     
  • Instruction - Learn to Paddle and Advanced Skill Programs
    In keeping with our long history of introducing new paddlers to safe boat handling and developing skill sets to match your paddling environment, we will continue to offer basic, intermediate and advanced paddling programs - right off our own docks!
     
  • Launch & Return Kayak & Canoe Rentals
    With the ease of slipping into the water from our new on water location, paddlers can explore tidal marsh wildlife and hidden alcoves along the 6 miles of Patcong Creek. Resident winged water life is always abundant with ducks, geese, herons, egrets, crows, cormorants and ospreys regularly visible. More elusive are the muskrats, otters and raccoons that call the marsh home.
     
  • Seasonal Discounted Kayak Rentals
    Not ready to make a purchase, but still want to enjoy all the wonders of paddling abundant South Jersey waters? We now offer seasonal rentals at discounted prices with the convenience of launching from our own docks - no transporting or up keep required! Of course, as always, if you wish to explore other waters, you can take a yak with you.
     
  • Salt Marsh & Full Moon Paddles
    The quiet and protected tidal water of Patcong Creek offer a wonderfully safe and enjoyable location to experience the wonders of the natural salt marsh environment, learn and appreciate the importance of the marsh to our fishery & eco systems. Even first time paddlers will appreciate our guided salt tours that introduce you to paddling techniques and help explore the marsh lands.
    For the more adventuresome, our new location will provide a very safe and  memorable location to experience our Sunset & Full Moon paddles - you will want more of this - every one is different!
     
  • On Site Storage for your kayaks or canoes
    Have a yak too big to store at home but still wish to have it easily available for shore paddling adventures - No Problem. The Shack now offers protected on site storage where your vessel will nest happily with other water craft safely awaiting your next visit.

Fishing & Crabbing
A little know feature of Patcong Creek is the diversity of fish living in that protected tidal water. The boys at 24/7 Bait & Tackle have actually caught 28 (yes- twenty eight!!) different species of fish in Patcong Creek. In season, you will find Blue Claw Crabs, Striped Bass, Snapper Blues, White Perch, Spot, Sheepshead, Bunker, Cat Fish and even an occasional winter Flounder and summer Fluke.
Specifically prepared Paddle Shack fishing kayaks and gear are available in our rental (& sales) fleet. All you bait and tackle needs can be met on site at 24/7 Bait & Tackle just a few feet from our door!

 

Help us Build our new location:
The invitation is open to paddlers who wish to share their outdoor interests and skills.
We will need additional staff to help with tours, training, sales, advertising, and all aspects of shop operations - including some carpentry and display fabrications.
