The Baltimore Floatilla is an annual 5-mile paddling event in Baltimore’s iconic Inner Harbor to support the Healthy Harbor Initiative.
This year, paddlers will “rock their boats” as Baltimore-based rock band, Thrillkiller, performs live from a floating stage aboard Mr. Trash Wheel. Thrillkiller will lead participants in the world’s largest kayak-based performance of Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. Together we will keep the Harbor Queen!
Registration for the Baltimore Floatilla includes a safe, fun and supervised paddle managed by Ultimate Watersports, an event t-shirt, and a boxed lunch picnic at Canton Waterfront Park. Participants can bring their own boats or reserve on-site kayaks and standup paddleboards with Ultimate Watersports for an additional fee during registration.
