By John Dowd Foreword by Freya Hoffmeister. He was publisher of the sport’s first magazine, Sea Kayaker, and is the former owner of a specialty kayak shop. He lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Freya Hoffmeister holds several records for distance kayaking and was the first woman (and second person) to complete a solo and unassisted circumnavigation of Australia. She is currently circumnavigating South America and, when she finishes in 2015, will be the first person to complete this circuit. She lives in Husum, Germany.

Still regarded as "the bible" for both new and experienced kayakers after more than thirty years in print, Sea Kayaking covers the basics of equipment and technique, including types of paddles and strokes, as well as such essential skills as how to read the weather and the water, how to navigate with and without GPS and how to travel with a group.

Canoeing & Kayaking must be done in a group from any location including Doe Bay, San Juan Island, Sucia Island and Orcas Island. A delivery charge will be added to all equipment deliveries on Orcas Island including Doe Bay. We will not rent a single kayak to an individual paddling alone. Youths under the age of 18 must be accompanied by adults. Delivery Charges: Equipment pickups from Smuggler’s Resort on Orcas Island are free.

She saw her secretary Louise staring at her over her computer screen er own office and closed the door. No doubt they’d all heard the news; in both medicine and law enforcement, there were few secrets. Maura had not been present at Christopher Scanlon’s autopsy, but she knew that Dr. Bristol had performed it, which meant he knew the circumstances of Scanlon’s death.

Together with Hutchinson, he taught sea kayaking clinics across the country, including many attached to Outward Bound programs. This book is not just a manual for learning how to improve your kayaking technique and tips on outfitting your boat.

Demonstrates kayaking techniques, tells how to plan a long ocean trip, and offers practical information about navigation, safety, camping, food gathering, and first aid

Great book. Not only words of wisdom but reference for further details to back up what he recommends. Wish I had read it before other trip I have taken.
Went Tyu
Represents what you really need to know about kayaking, presented in a friendly, straightforward manner.
Kulabandis
A very comprehensive book covering almost every aspect of sea kayaking that needs to be covered. It's also very interesting to read, especially expedition stories.

Excellent, not for the beginner. I bought this as a companion to Johnson's "Sea Kayakers Handbook" I could have just used this one.
Exellent
I bought a second hand book, is almost new (all but one page with some text surlined). Beyond this, is a good kayaking book that explains concepts of navigation, waves, tydes, and some more facts oriented to long kayak trips.
Vispel
Scary but very precise coverage of subjects you need to know. A little daunting for a neophyte just learning.
Elastic Skunk
Probably has some good info, but written in a booring style and I mosty fell when reading it. I finally stuck tis book somewhere and will robably never go back to it. A lot of information which is contained in other books.
Haven't read it yet
