As at all Exchanges, it's best to BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat!) as boats will be quite limited! If you have 2 kayaks and are willing to share, please help support your guide community and bring it out as well! If you are not able to bring your own kayak/gear, please contact Christine Hollman at Terracentric Coastal Adventures for your rental needs.
What to Bring:
Full Coast Guard Reguirements are mandatory as always; full immersion gear (drysuits or wetsuits) are required for all rolling & rescue courses. The Exchange is a great time to dust off you guiding gear while brushing up on skills, so feel free to pack along your regular guiding kit (VHF, charts, first aid kit, flares, rewarming gear, etc). Please also provide all your own camping gear as none will be available for loaning out. If you're someone who likes snacking through out the day, please also come prepared with your own treats for in between the provided meals!
$187 per SKGABC Member. Includes most meals, camping option, participation in activities, and chance to win door prizes.
Prepayment is required.
Registration: Is Now Closed.
Please remember to initial the top of the waiver, and add a witness signature at the bottom!
