Remote campsites, scenic vistas, wild coastlines and the chance to see every critter that lives in these parts are all a part of the package! This trip is only for fit, adventurous people willing to accept a challenge. You must be active, muscle-toned and ready for excitement. For those who meet these criteria awaits an adventure with cozy campfires, sea glass hunting, whale watching, sea kayak sailing and scrumptious camp cuisine. Marvelous sunset hikes and bioluminescent paddles will make this trip the highlight of your summer!
The “Ultimate!” is scheduled only when the tides are just right to aid us with rivers of current each day of the trip. Learning about tidal flows and observing the beauty of a moving sea adds greatly to your education and enjoyment of this unique environment. Our guides are experts at using tides to sweep us along coastlines and make open-water crossings. Wind and/or rough seas may require prolonged paddling at times, so all participants must be fit and have a can-do attitude.
Camping at a uniquely beautiful, seaside campsite each night gives us the chance to explore special islands. By kayak and on foot we’ll experience Jones Island, Sucia Island, Matia Island, Clark Island, Turn Island, Yellow Island and Obstruction Pass. In between these locations lie majestic sandstone cliffs, pristine beaches, dense coniferous forest and intertidal abundance. We’ll hike coastal and old-growth forest trails, relax in hammocks we carry along and enjoy sunset views that will astound. And don’t forget our sea kayak sail system, as this trip provides great opportunity to hoist our spinnakers!
