Level 2: Sea Kayaking Social

Come for a sunset paddle! Join other kayakers to go out in the afternoon and paddle in the setting sun. It’s a California adventure! After we return and put everything away, bring something to share with your fellow sailors, and we’ll supply the hot cocoa! This program is a lot like our full moon paddle, but with sea kayaks, and we may get to go further afield.

This course is only open to people who know how to sea kayak, either through our classes or a check out paddle at the Marina.
