THIS INCLUDES:

  • Route.
  • Campsites.
  • Logistics.
  • Personal medications and rescue gear.

What to Bring

FOOD AND WATER

  • Enough food and water to keep you happy. Store it in waterproof containers because we often take lunch along with us to eat in the field.
  • Enough Water to sustain you for the entire day . (If the weather is cold then bring a thermos too.)
  • Perhaps a candy bar or a snack that can be stored in your pfd for a quick snack out on the water.

GEAR

  • Sea Kayak (or appropriate boat if taking whitewater or canoe class). (If you do not have one then we can rent you a package.)
  • Drysuit. You will be getting wet.
  • Paddle, spray skirt, other related gear.
  • Life jacket.
  • Tow belt.
  • First aid.
  • Dry bags.
  • Overnight trips: camp gear (i.e. tent and sleep system)
  • Layered clothing for warmth. Avoid cotton.
  • Dry clothing for after the class. 

If you do not own or have access to a sea kayak or paddling gear and need to rent from us we are happy to help! You can rent a kayak and all paddling equipment for an additional $35 a day and an extra $15 a day for the dry suit. We do not provide food, so make sure you plan and pack accordingly.

MULTI-DAY KAYAK CLASSES THAT INCLUDE CAMPING IN THE FIELD

For multi-day kayak camping trips participants are responsible for bringing their own camping gear and preparing their own food. We have a limited supply of camping gear that we can rent. Call for details.
