September 15-2, 2019 - Winter Harbor, Maine

Join Us Kayaking In Maine

Take a week kayaking the spectacular coastline around Schoodic Point with Guillemot Kayaks designer/builder Nick Schade and Sea Sherpa Kayak coach Gerry Polinsky.

The? Schoodic Sea Kayak Retreat is a unique event: Part open water instructional, part exploration. While the Schoodic Peninsula is within sight of Mount Desert Island and every bit as ruggedly beautiful, it is remote and crowd free. This area offers some of the best, most scenic paddling along the eastern seaboard.

Whether you are new to open water paddling or a seasoned rough water warrior, we will have a pod of similarly experienced paddlers to enjoy your week with. You will build your skills and comfort in fun conditions through progressive, individualized instruction. Each day will be spent exploring remote islands and rocky coastlines. Some days will feature a boat swap highlighting Guillemot Kayaks designs by Nick Schade, or a rolling class, or tasting whitewater in a sea kayak at the renowned Sullivan Reversing Falls, or just a relaxing paddle in a scenic harbor.

Friends and Family? program: We include activities for non-paddlers: Paint-and-Sip art class, night sky exploration, interpretive formal garden tour. Bring a non-paddling friend or significant other along and while you are on the water, they can hike the fantastic local trails, take a ferry to Mount Desert Island, go shopping in Bar Harbor, etc… Paddlers are welcome to take time off to join in on the dry-land fun.

We'll? be housed? and fed at the Schoodic Institute which features comfy, roomy apartments and hearty, delicious food. Set on the scenic point of the Schoodic Peninsula, the campus makes for an impressive background to the week's activities.
