Advanced Tides and Currents

September 18 @ 8:00 am - September 19 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Advanced Tides and Skills


Learn the skills and strategies for dealing with the powerful currents, tidal races, and overfalls that run through the San Juan Islands. We will explore ferry gliding, how to read water, crossing strategies, and how to predict the time, speed, and direction of currents. These are the skills you need to plan an easy, fun, and safe trip. We start by refreshing your skills, and then we enter these races and build your confidence as the currents increase. This is a great class to start building your rough water skills and broaden your knowledge of the sea. Come to this class with play in mind!

We will use the best tidal venues in the Islands to test your skills and build rough water confidence. We will dive deeper into the intricacies of reading water and tidal planning.
