Welcome to expeditionkayak.com
The aim of this website is to enable you to discover and share the world of expedition sea kayaking from the comfort of your armchair. Even if you have never ‘enjoyed’ putting on cold, wet kayaking clothes day after day, never felt the need to paddle for 10 (or more) hours without getting out of your kayak or never fancied the idea of eating freeze dried food for a month, but enjoy reading about people that do, then this site is for you.
This site is a portal to a world of adventure through the sport of sea kayaking. It is also an opportunity for the sea kayaking community to share wisdom and experience. For the wannabe expedition kayaker it is a valuable resource to help you plan your first adventure. For the seasoned explorer it is a way to share your adventures with a wider audience and in so doing share your experience and knowledge gained and perhaps enable others to follow in your wake. As well as good karma, you will hopefully receive publicity that may attract the funding and support you’ll need for your next challenge.

Paddling solo, carrying everything in a 17 foot expedition sea kayak. I'm a novice, taking a year to train for this, I am being trained by Isle of Portland Canoe Club and Atlantic solo kayaker Peter Bray. Please take a look at my Facebook page, Kayak 'The Great Loop ' -paddle with Steve Steve Chard

Sean Morley paddling in British Columbia SPOT Satellite Messenger, West Coast of Vancouver Island So what 'qualifies' as an 'expedition' versus a kayak trip or holiday? It's a good question open to interpretation but to qualify to be featured on this website, your trip would need to be something reasonably significant, something with a goal, something fairly unique. It doesn't neccesarily need to be a 'first' or record setting but it needs to be something that takes the reader somewhere new, away from the crowds and sparks the [...]
