Kayak Sampler

Are you fairly new to kayaking, interested in paddling in a sea kayak, or just want to have a comfortable,easy, and short distance paddle? Have we something for you.

The Kayak Sampler is a shortened paddle trip, on the smaller lakes near and around West Bend, and Port Washington, WI. These smaller lakes provide as an excellent starter body of water for the first time paddler or someone with less time available. The events are two hours long (with about 15 to 30 min on shore orientation, including adjusting your kayak). These are designed to offer an exploratory paddle experience along the shoreline. We shall be present on water with you to ensure safety and offer very basic refinements to make your trip easier for you. This is not intended as a class or lesson like our other services we provide; however they’ll be just as much fun!

 

The paddle trip will start at Waubedonia park and we shall paddle up the Milwaukee river towards the Mill, and return where we started – total distance about 2.5 miles. There are no power boats along this stretch, an occasional angler may be seen. If there is a personal desire to paddle a smaller lake (Little Cedar lake or Random Lake) this can be arranged.

 

Kayak and gear included in the price. You are responsible for proper paddle clothing, and always dress for the water temperatures.

Please also register for this to ensure there is availability.

Class limited to 5 participants. Cost $30

Kayak Adventure in Poros, Greece – REALLY!!

Passing the Naval station

 

**** Please note – this trip has been sold out. Thank you to all for the interest! *******

Imagine yourself paddling in another country, where the waters are a warm, clear turquoise. Gentle lapping of small waves onto the beaches lull your senses into relaxing submission. The weather is warm and inviting with tropical breezes blowing through olive and citrus tree canopies. Greek locals greet you with a kind “Yasou” passing you on the street. Find yourself at the local café downtown sipping on a drink, as you watch the boats depart the marina. Savor a historic adventure as you explore the island by scooter – investigating shrines and temples from a thousand years ago.

 

 

Join us as Kristin and I (Silent Wake) return to Poros, Greece Sept 12-19th, 2020. This will be our third time to the island and we wish to have you join us.
