Sea Kayaking Workshop at Hollyhock

Step aboard the 43 foot schooner Misty Isles for 5 days of kayak training and exploration on the protected ocean waters surrounding Cortes Island.  Learn from experienced local guides while journeying by sailboat to new paddling destinations each day.  

Learn safe and comfortable technical skills, nautical navigation, and approaches to interpreting seasonal weather and tides.  A profoundly beautiful and rugged landscape disappears into the calm waters that draw us into each day, and opportunities ranging from wildlife encounters and sail raising, to peaceful and serene moments simply enveloped by nature. 

Day’s end has us secured at anchor in front of Hollyhock, just in time for dinner and a hot tub. This workshop is open to all levels of expertise, with varying degrees of challenge available depending on experience and comfort level. Kayaks, paddles, and Personal Flotation Devices are provided.  Limited to 12 participants.
