Rocks & Ledges - Bar Harbor

  • Mount Desert Island Area United States

That dynamic strip of real-estate where the land and sea mix it up is full of opportunities for improving boat control, and having a good time.  For students with basic boat-handling and rescue skills, the cliffs, caves, slots, and countless variety of rock features surrounding our glacially-carved islands will provide the perfect venue to tune up your skills.  Since going straight is rarely an option in this environment you'll get lots of practice applying strokes in a changing environment.  We'll focus on learning how to use the ocean's wave energy to our advantage, because paddling with the sea as your partner is always easier than going head to head!  (Read Nate's description of a recent rock-gardening trip on Mount Desert Island.)
