Learn Ocean-Related Skills That Are Essential for Ocean Paddlers in Maine

This 3-part workshop series covers topics ranging from sea kayak navigation to the dynamics of tides and currents

This winter we are offering our Ocean Skills Workshops as a 3-part in-person series of workshops taught in the beautiful offices of the Maine Island Trail Association! (In recent years the workshops have been offered online only). Each session meets for three hours. We recommend taking all three workshops together, but it is okay to only take one or two if you have scheduling restrictions or are most interested in learning the topic in a certain workshop. Each workshop is indoors; we do not go on the water for this series.

Students will receive access to a course website with exercises and resources that we will discuss during our class. The course is taught by Suzanne Blackburn and Zack Anchors, both of whom are licensed Maine Sea Kayak Guides and ACA-certified coastal kayaking instructors.
