One of Downeast Maine's signature attractions, the reversing tidal falls are areas of strong current created by the rise and fall of tides. For sea kayakers, these areas provide a variety of conditions (bumpy water, eddy lines, moving water, smooth green waves) making them excellent classrooms for refining boat handling in a more challenging environment. They also make really fun playgrounds for applying your skills and presure-testing sea kayak skills in extremely rough conditions, with calm areas nearby. We are fortunate to have what we think is the best tidal current training venue in Maine right in our neighborhood.
This course is appropriate for improving coastal kayakers who have had previous instruction, and are comfortable performing strokes and rescues in moderate coastal conditions.
Combine with July 10th Roll Tune-up, and July 11th Rough Water classes for a well-rounded 3-day course for improving or advanced paddlers.
