Sea Kayaking 110, Saltwater Day-Trip

$ 200.00 USD


Saltwater Day-Trip                                 

This class is both an introduction and a refresher for those that want to learn about kayak navigation, tides, currents, and paddling in Puget Sound. 

You'll start with an evening remote-learning class with an intro to charts, kayak navigation, weather, currents/tides, and trip planning. Then you'll gain practical experience applying these skills by going on a one-day kayak trip on the Puget Sound. The location depends on the weather and currents - you’ll learn why.

The remote class will be arranged with your instructor one or two evenings before the trip. 

Please read the prerequisite for the class. If you have already taken SK113 or SK115, this class is your chance to get a refresher on trip planning and kayaking in the Puget Sound.

If you have taken our SK101 and SK102 classes and are ready to take the next step, this class is a great progression in your learning journey by moving from lakes to saltwater. 

Prerequisites: SK102, SK111, or SK115
