Expedition Skills Course 5-Day (FULL)

August 24 - August 28

Expedition Skills Kayaking



This is our most comprehensive class. For 5 days, you will be immersed in sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands. We will use the pull of the moon to go from one island to another, faster and with less effort. We will learn how to go from a “low oxygen environment” to a “high oxygen environment” with the drop of a leg and a sweep of the paddle. We will eat seaweed, see awesome wildlife, and roast marshmallows by the campfire. This is a learning vacation! With other paddlers and great coaches, you will learn about: kayak technique, kayak rescues, rolling, towing, reading and predicting currents, and navigation. If you are passionate about kayaking, have the stamina to play hard for five days in a row, and love to learn, this is a great class for you!

Enjoy the beauty of the San Juan Islands on the multi-day adventure while working on your planning, navigation, leadership, and paddling skills on our most comprehensive multi-day course.
