The Floatilla is an annual 5-mile paddling event in Baltimore’s iconic Inner Harbor.
This year we are celebrating Baltimore wildlife and encourage paddlers to decorate their boats, boards or bodies in celebration of their favorite local animals. Think crabs, oysters, rockfish, trash wheels? pink flamingos?
rats? Be creative!
Money raised by the Floatilla will provide City students with environmental field trips, makeover dirty alleys and help Mr. Trash Wheel and Prof. Trash Wheel keep hundreds of tons of trash out of the water.
Early Bird: $30 (March 1st - March 31st)
Advanced: $35 (April 1st – April 30th)
General: $40 (May 1st – June 4th)
