Paddling - Sea Kayaking
In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through April 30.
We will be kayak camping on Lovell Island as we improve our stroke and rescue skills in the open-water environment of the harbor. If you are ready to take your kayaking skills and experience to the next level, join us for this adventurous weekend. Our goal will be to make you a safer kayaker. This trip is for intermediate-level paddlers who have previous open-water training or experience and are comfortable camping. A trip fee will be assessed.
