Prior to Tidal Currents at Sullivan Falls on June 29th, we are offering a tidal currents warm-up at Bagaduce Falls.  We will work on the fundamental maneuvers for sea kayaking in current, including eddy turns and ferrying, and refine and apply strokes such as rudders and sweeps to execute those maneuvers with grace.  This course is useful as an intro for those new to currents, or as a chance for those with previous currents training to improve finesse and understanding in a less boisterous environment.  Click on course title for more details.

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.  Click on course title for complete description.
