Join North Star Adventures and Friends of Sears Island for an introduction to Sea Kayaking on August 4th, from 12-2pm. We will spend two hours learning paddling technique as we explore Sears Island from the water. You may want to bring binoculars for watching sea birds and scouting for seals. If you have always wanted to sea kayak but don’t own a boat or are nervous about paddling in the bay now is the time to learn how to safely paddle and enjoy the marine environment.
To reserve a spot, visit https://northstaradventures.me/event/sea-kayaking-with-friends-of-sears-island/. Please indicate on your reservation if you would like a single or double kayak. Reserve early if you would like a single, we have a limited number. If you have you own boat you must contact North Star Adventures to get approval. Sea Kayaks have sealed bulkheads, are typically more streamline and are designed specifically for use on the sea. Recreational or lake kayaks are not appropriate for the ocean.
Cost is $40 per person, and space is limited to 12! If there is enough interest we can add a second session immediately following the first. North Star Adventures will generously donate 10% of their total income from this event to Friends of Sears Island!
In the event of inclement weather, the instructor will decide whether to cancel the program and participants will be notified. If the program is cancelled, refunds will be issued.
Come and join us for a great afternoon exploring Penobscot Bay around Sears Island!
