2015 Alaska Sea Camp – The Players

Our full crew before leaving Juneau

Our full crew before leaving Juneau

This was an Inland Sea Kayakers trip and all participants were ISK members. The factors that made them such a good fit for this type of expedition were 3 things

1) they’ve had considerable training that had been offered through the club

2) they had a known skill set 

3) they had previous ocean experience

“[In March 2015] I joined the Cumberland Island adventure to get a little taste of salt water before heading to Alaska. Going to Cumberland Island gave me a chance to learn a little about tides and currents first hand. Jeff and Michelle were good about talking about route planning and how we had to consider the tides and currents so we could use them to our advantage instead of fighting them.” -Mike-
