Travel on the "edge" in a land of contrasts: between tropic and semi tropic, between land and sea, between salt water and fresh water, wilderness surrounded by high urbanization, between the ancient and modern world.
Along with sea kayaking skills and expedition planning, you'll experience a wilderness area that is famous worldwide for its unique eco-system. Learn about its value to our global environment and the hazards that threaten it.
You'll develop teamwork while working together to find your way to a sandy beach each evening, set up camp, cook your own meals over a camp stove and learn Leave No Trace techniques to minimize your impact on the land. Put your heads together to decipher charts and find your way through the maze-like mangrove islands.
On this sea kayaking course, you will learn and practice:
- Basic water safety
- Paddling techniques
- Self rescues/group rescues
- Equipment maintenance
- Use of VHF radios
- Local ecology and history
Students should come with a strong commitment to enjoy a fun and exciting course but also to tackle the physical challenges of sea kayaking as well as the mental challenges of living with and traveling in a group. Successful completion of your course demands mastery of skills, trust, fitness, confidence, tenacity, leadership, initiative and compassion. No prior experience is necessary.
