Tidal Currents Progression 3-Day

July 17 @ 8:00 am - July 19 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Tidal Progression


The poets say that “variety is the spice of life” and we believe them. Kayaking in diverse situations is the most effective way to develop comprehensive skill sets. We will test our skills using multiple venues, helping us develop a more well-rounded ability to read water, react to changing conditions, and use our body, boat, and blade more effectively. This instructional course will explore the best tidal races that the San Juan Islands have to offer. Starting in Deception Pass we will practice using advanced paddling techniques to master the swift-moving water and incredible features. Afterward, we will take a ferry into the San Juan Islands to spend the remainder of the class working in our very favorite tidal race. Prepare to have sore cheeks from so much smiling and tired arms from so much fun!

Come on a journey to progress your rough water paddling skills in some of the best venues in the PNW. Increase your skills, confidence, and knowledge of the sea in this progressive course.
