Ocean Kayaking Adventures
One of the most exciting aspects of the program at Cherry Cove is the chance to go sea kayaking. Students will learn basic paddling and kayak safety while exploring Catalina’s scenic coast and beaches. Students do not need to have any previous kayaking experience and will be wearing life jackets for the duration of their time on the water.
Prior to their first kayak, groups will discuss paddling techniques, safety, boarding and beaching techniques, equipment care and handling and cleanup procedures. On completion of the kayak session, students will be able to maneuver and stop the kayak as well as right and enter an overturned kayak.
Day Trip (5-Day Groups Only)
Five-day groups can kayak and/or hike to explore an adjacent part of the island. During this day-long excursion, the group will eat a picnic lunch, as well as snorkel or tide pool at the new location before returning to Cherry Cove for dinner.
