This is a sea kayak touring and instructional camp geared towards intermediate and advanced paddlers. This program is best suited for those who have established intermediate level and above kayak paddling skills, experience and physical conditioning. The intermediate level is required in order to paddle in potential wind, waves, swell and ocean current. Potential conditions will not be appropriate for novice or beginner paddlers with less than 3 years experience. We will be paddling the waters based out of Discovery Islands Lodge on Quadra Island in the area surrounding Surge Narrows. You will be exposed to moving water and the changing conditions associated with the tides. Refine and expand your paddling knowledge and skills in a truly wild and beautiful ocean environment. We will customize personal instruction based on individual expectations.
The area around Discovery Islands Lodge provides easy access to uncrowded paradise of clear sheltered ocean, tidal rapids, marine parks, abundant wildlife, spectacular rainforest, and towering mountain vistas. Come, relax and meet fellow paddlers as we explore and challenge (by choice) your paddling skills. We will also spoil you with amazing gourmet food!

I am enthusiastically satisfied with my overall experience with SKILS. The course was very rich and positively exhausting, exceeding my expectations. A highlight of my summer on the west coast.
