The arrival of spring brings many things, the trees and flowers are beginning to bloom and the days are getting longer. It’s good to see the end of winter. Bottom line, it's good to feel the hint of a warm breeze in the air.
If you are anything like me, as the weather gets warmer my mind begins to wander. As I drive to work I find myself not thinking about what I need to get done that day, but how I get to play after work. During the workday my eyes occasionally shift from my computer screen and stray out my office window to the waters of Puget Sound and I daydream about this upcoming summer’s adventures.
It would be impossible to imagine a great kayaking adventure without thinking of Alaska. This has to be on most sea kayakers’ wish lists. (If only I could get this onto my wife's "honey-do" list.)
Many of our readers are interested in paddling in Alaska this year and now is a good time to do a bit of research to assure your trip goes well.
Alaska has more coastline than all of the other states combined and there is no better way to explore much of Alaska's saltwater domain than by sea kayak.
With so many possible places to paddle, it only makes sense that there are a multitude of resources available to help you to decide who to paddle with, where to stay and what type of experience will meet your expectations.
I've put together a list of available resources that we currently are doing business with and I encourage you to contact them for information.
Please remember to mention that you heard about them from Sea Kayaker magazine.
