We want to share our knowledge, skill, and our love of paddling and the sea with you. We specialize in high quality instruction for paddlers at any skill level. Our certified instructors are committed to upholding the highest standards of coaching, leadership, and judgment in every program that we offer. To round out your learning experience, we offer year-round courses taught by world-renowned guest coaches.

Our home is Orcas Island Washington, a beautiful small island located in the San Juan Archipelago. We offer classes and trips in some of the best paddling destinations that exist. The San Juan Islands offer protected bays and lakes for beginners, tidal races, over falls, and complex navigation for the more advanced paddler. The nearby rugged Washington and British Columbia coasts offer excellent opportunities for our surf, white-water and expedition courses. We believe that kayaking is all about having fun. By increasing your skills you greatly increase the fun, excitement, and opportunities you have as a paddler.
