We’re excited to celebrate 14 years of the Door County Sea Kayak Symposium. Join us as we build a community of sea kayakers for a few days each summer. Whether you are an experienced kayaker or just beginning, the Door County Sea Kayak Symposium is a weekend of fun, growth and learning for everyone!
Classes - Quality on-water classes and land-based workshops that will help you develop and improve your sea kayaking skills. We offer a beginner track, women-only courses, and specialty courses at all levels.
Tours - Enjoy guided trips to the rocky coves, rugged cliffs, and sandy beaches of Door County. Whatever your skill level we have a tour for you. Paddle with a naturalist, glimpse a sunken shipwreck, decipher pictographs, spot lighthouses, ride the waves, and more. Discover the beauty of Door County and put your skills to use!
Community - Build community with other paddlers both on and off the water. Social happenings off the water include group meals, evening campfires, free beer wagon, "barn" dance, slide show, auction to benefit the Door County Land Trust, and ice cream social.
Instructors - You'll love our experienced, fun and dedicated instructors who are passionate about helping you get to the next level. Come learn from the pros!
Family Friendly - Bring the whole family! We offer paddling classes for kids and guided tours for the entire family.

"The best part about the symposium was being in a community of paddlers in a supportive atmosphere. I prefer solo paddling and getting away from the crowds but I was touched deeply by the positive energy of so many leave-no-trace, silent sports people."
"I stretched myself because I knew I was in a safe environment."
