Why A Kayaking Website?

I have created 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 sea kayaking fairly late in life, after early years as a power boater and twenty years as a Great Lakes sailor.  

In 1994, my wife Lisa and I were looking for a different kind of vacation experience, when I stumbled on an advertisement for a three day, wilderness kayaking trip off the coast of Maine near Bar Harbor.  Neither one of us had been in a kayak before but we gave it a try and loved it.  We’ve been kayaking now for another twenty years.  I don’t plan to stop until I’m no longer able to paddle!

Paddling in a New Location

Originally from the beautiful, but cold and snowy, upstate New York, we have relocated to the sunny Treasure Coast of Florida.  If you are a Snowbird, look here for information on paddling in Florida as you prepare for your winter visit.  “Homesteaders” - full time Florida Residents, may find useful information here as well.  And everyone will find great adventure stories.
