What we're about
I created this group to provide paddling trips, practice sessions and classes for more experienced Sea Kayakers. We will paddle more open bodies of water including the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts, bays and rivers that lead to open water.
Participants should be comfortable and enjoy paddling in open water weather and water conditions. We will follow ACA safe paddling protocols including the use of PFDs and sprayskirts. the abililty to perform wet exits and self and assisted rescues are required to participate on our trips. Additional safety equipment including spare paddles, paddle floats, signaling devices,radios, first aid pack and appropriate paddle clothing are recommended.
Less experienced Kayakers can advance their skills by participating in various classes including strokes and rescues, advanced maneuvers and boat control and rolling will be offered. Greenland skills classes are available as an introduction or for advanced rollers who enjoy the beauty and culture of traditional paddling.
Looking forward to safe and enjoyable paddling trips!
