This tour is set up like an expedition, where everyone will work together to accomplish goals. You have to be able to paddle in calm and windy circumstances at a normal pace. Everybody needs to be able to swim, and to be strong enough to lift a fully packed kayak in and out of the water, in rocky and slippery landing conditions. If you like an adventure in wild and overwhelming nature, and a good conversation around the campfire, this is the trip for you!See more
