Thanks for a great Door County Sea Kayak Symposium!
Rowleys Bay Resort, Door County, WI

A big thanks to everyone who attended, instructed and helped out at the 2019 Door County Sea Kayak Symposium. The weekend was a huge success and we enjoyed sharing time on the water with all of you. New paddlers discovered the magic of kayaking as we made new friends and reconnected with old ones. We all had a great big party, and, thanks to your participation, made a nice donation to the Door County Land Trust!

Save the dates for year 17 and 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 & programs, free beer wagon, ice cream social (sponsored by Wilderness Systems), slide show, and an auction to benefit the Door County Land Trust.

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 most beneficial aspect of the weekend was becoming part of a paddling community and meeting people who inspire me to learn more and become more confident in the skills I have and have not learned."
