Adult Courses

10,000 Islands Sea Kayaking

Length: 7-days

Ages: 30+

Dates: 2/17/18 - 2/23/18

On this expedition, you will be paddling through lush mangrove tunnels in a land of contrast: between tropic and semi-tropic, land and sea and salt and fresh water. You and your crew will learn to work together to read tide charts, explore unique ecosystems, cook and set-up camp on white sandy beaches under the stars as you paddle to new areas each day. These courses are perfect for those who find themselves at a transition point in their lives, need a fresh new outlook, or want to remind themselves there is more in them than they know.
