Planning a day on the water or an extended day expedition requires more then a message to friends with a date and location. During this classroom-based program we will introduce you to a proven template for planning days on the water that can be used by all paddlers regardless of abilities.

Sea you in the classroom.  


This interactive program will have you use charts, different smartphone apps and example-based situations to gain a better understanding of the key trip planning concepts. We will explore four key concepts for planning sea kayak trips:

  • Objective of the trip
  • Abilities of the group 
  • The Environment 
  • The Route
