WELCOME ABOARD…

 

My first sea kayak - a big, slightly off-center Haxby original - on the shores of Resurrection Bay in Alaska (circa 1986),

My first sea kayak – a big, slightly off-center Haxby original – on the shores of Resurrection Bay in Alaska (circa 1986),

Welcome to Wavetamer Adventures. Just after moving to Alaska in 1985, a buddy and I started a kayak business selling Feathercraft folding kayaks. We called ourselves Wavetamer Kayaking. Over the years that interest in sea kayaks has expanded to include the history of the craft and the love of the destinations, skills, equipment, and adventures that go along with their use and enjoyment. Some of that fondness is expressed within these pages. Enjoy!
