My NW Paddling Trips are for experienced paddlers seeking to build skills with tidal current on the Salish Sea.
Taught by our certified coaches, find out how tidal currents work and best methods for paddling up and down current plus other essential touring skills.
For sea kayakers, surf skis and sups (14′ or longer). Must have solid remount, self-rescue skills and able to paddle 6-10 miles.
