Deception Pass Clinic

September 8, 2023 - September 9, 2023

Advanced Sea Kayak Skills Training, Anacortes Washington

Learn to master the challenge that is Deception Pass in this 2-day clinic. Deception Pass is world renowned as one of the best paddling destinations in the world and is our favorite classroom! Participants in this kayak class will learn how to read the water, identify and navigate hazards, paddle efficiently, and how to have fun even when the water gets a little rough. Your kayak coaches will introduce new concepts that will enable you to effectively enter and exit tidal streams and cope with other features that dynamic water creates. Self-rescue techniques and assisted-rescue techniques will be introduced throughout each day.

This class is mainly focused on understanding hydrodynamics and techniques for playing. If you are most interested in navigation and tidal planning, check out our Navigation and Tidal Planning!
