Kayaking in the San Juans

July 29-31, 2011

The "explorer expedition" is fully catered and supplied, so interested alumni need only to sign up and bring some sunscreen. This trip will be conducted in small groups of eight kayakers (one professional guide/cook for each eight people who sign up) up to a maximum of 30 total. No sea kayaking experience is required.

The trip is being conducted by Discovery Sea Kayaks, a company that was selected as a "best travel company on earth" two years in a row by National Geographic Adventure Magazine. Base cost for Willamette participants is $535 per person (including all gear, tents, food and drink, guide services and transportation between the travel company's base in Friday Harbor and the kayaking site), and requires a 25% non-refundable deposit on registration for each paddler, with the balance due before the trip starts. There is a 15% discount, though, for full prepayments made before March 31.

Learn more at the trip webpage and email alumni@willamette.edu if you have any questions. Registration for this trip is done through Discovery Sea Kayaks' website directly, but we're happy to help along the way.
