Urban as it is, Tempe Town Lake can suddenly feel miles away from it all when you’re drifting way out from the shoreline in a slim little boat for one. It’s even better when you do it in the dark.

Tempe offers three “Moon Light Kayak” sessions on the lake this summer, the first at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Night-loving paddlers — who are supplied for the evening with a boat, paddle and life vest — get to explore the calm waters, taking in rippled reflections of twinkly lit buildings and streetlights beneath them, and the glow of the moon overhead.

No experience is necessary, and a list of acceptable clothing and footwear is available via www.tempe.gov/boating; click on “Kayaking” or “Frequently Asked Questions.”

Participants must be 18 or older. The city also offers Youth Paddling, Fitness Paddling and a Father’s Day Paddle. Information on those classes is available on the boating webpage or by phone.

DETAILS >> 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. Repeats July 7 and Aug. 4. Advance registration required. Tempe Town Lake Marina, 620 N. Mill Ave. (on the north bank of the lake, under the Loop 202 Freeway just west of Mill Avenue.) $30 per person. (480) 350-8069 or www.tempe.gov/boating.
