Happy Paddling in 2014!
Look for new reports and adventures through out the year!
Why a kayaking website? I have created Yackman.com as a way to share my passion for sea kayaking and wilderness, and to tell you about some of the places I have visited. I came to kayaking late in my life, after early years as a power boater and many years as a great lakes sailor. My wife, Lisa
and I were looking for a different kind of vacation in 1994, when I stumbled on an advertisement for a three day, wilderness kayaking trip off the coast of Maine. Neither one of us had been in a kayak before, but we gave it a try and loved it. The rest, as they say, is history.
Yackman Has Moved!

Yackman has moved from beautiful (but cold and snowy) upstate New York to the Treasure Coast of Florida. If you are a Snowbird, look here for information on Paddling in Florida as you prepare for a winter visit. “Homesteaders” - full time Florida residents, may also find useful information here as well. And anyone can email me to go paddling.
