Kayaking Classes

Just want to give a shout out for a great Basic Kayaking class conducted by Robert two days this week in Ballard.  All gear/wet suits needed were supplied, questions answered patiently and expectations exceeded!  We will go on our Antarctic expedition much more confident and well prepared!  
Thanks Rob and Robert!

The Pacific Northwest has some of the best sea kayaking in the world with endless waterways, majestic mountain views and rich sea life.

We love paddling in the beautiful San Juan Islands, kayak surfing the Washington coast, running the rapids of Deception Pass and exploring the hidden back waters of the South Puget Sound.

My book “Paddling the Salish Sea, 80 Trips” has allowed me and my readers to find hidden escapes close to home as well as travel along the 75 campsite Cascadia Marine Trail which extends from Olympia to the Canadian border.

Beyond our borders is the BC Marine Trail with many more miles of discovery.

My sea kayaking lessons are personalized private experiences for beginners through advanced paddlers available as 1-1 or two person private sessions.

Your coaches are ACA certified and known for their patience and focus on safety.

Personalized means we’ll develop a lesson or training plan that meets your goals, schedule and budget.
