Seeing a surge of new sea kayakers and ever-growing popularity of kayak polo, I'm contemplating some sea kayaking trip for coming september longweekend. Southern Gulf Island is a novice kayaker friendly place, though can be tricky depending on timing of tide and weather condition (we will discuss this at the pretrip meeting while making a float plan). Rough idea is to catch a ferry from Tsawassan to Swartz bay, take another ferry to an island, and same way back. We can decide if we'll do island-hopping style, or base camping and do multiple day paddles.

To participate in this trip, you should know how to do assisted rescue. If you don't know how, but still want to come, talk to the kayak polo people, or let me know and I will organize something on beach.

Also, I will organize a pre-trip meeting to make a float plan. This involves tide/current tables, charts, and compass. You MUST attend the meeting to be on a trip, unless you make me convince otherwise.
