    October 2010 Newsletter
    Sea Kayaking Trips
    In a previous newsletter, we described why sea kayaking is a wonderful sport and dispelled some of the common myths (if you missed that newsletter, click here). This year we are expanding the options, adding several shorter trips that include instruction. Want to try kayaking before committing to a longer, more expensive trip? Now you can.
    New trips that are perfect for beginners, or anyone wanting to improve their paddling strokes, are Paddling with the Manatees in January and Chesapeake Bay Kayaking in April. The Manatees trip is already full, but with enough interest we'll add a second - let us know soon. The second trip is on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. While the area is best known for the touristy town of Ocean City, it is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Maryland. We'll be staying at two completely different hotels, eat at some of the fine area restaurants, search for Misty's descendants on the island of Assateague, kayak in three different ecosystems, plus learn kayaking skills - its guaranteed to be a fun and full long weekend. For those with some experience, who have worn a spray skirt and know how to get out of a kayak while wearing it, we have Sea Kayaking Cumberland Island. This historic barrier island off the coast of Georgia offers great wilderness camping and hiking. We've made it back to back with Paddling the Okefenokee so you can combine them easily for a longer vacation.
    We also have 4 longer kayaking trips and we welcome novice paddlers on them too. We call our Panama trip Panama, the new Costa Rica, because it offers what people are looking for when they go to Costa Rica and have an increasingly difficult time finding: unspoiled land of incredible biodiversity that isn't full of tourists. In early March there is the always popular Sea Kayaking the Caribbean. And we have a new itinerary for Sea Kayaking Grecian Islands that has two nights camping and the rest staying in small hotels. Finally we will be returning to the craggy coast of Nova Scotia this July.
    Haven't really considered kayaking before? Particularly for those of us who have always been hikers and backpackers but find our creaky knees or aging back are making it less fun, kayaking provides a wonderful new way to immerse ourselves in wilderness.
    Trip Spotlight: Cruising Turkey
    Cruising Turkey's Turquoise Coast is one of our new international trips this year. The destination in and of itself is quite appealing: right on the border of East and West, Turkey has played a significant role throughout history and is still the most prominent secular Muslim nation. We think this itinerary gets off the beaten path and gives you a unique introduction to its natural beauty and history.
    It has two additional features we found very appealing: unlike our other international trips, it is totally suitable for women of all fitness levels. There is some delightful hiking but if you're in the mood to stay on board, swim and snorkel, or just relax and read a book, you're welcome to do so. No one else is on the boat except the crew. And once we arrive at the boat, you only have to unpack once! Doesn't the name Turkish Delight sound appropriate?
