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.

KAYAKING KODIAK

KAYAKING KODIAK

As my love of sea kayaking grew, so did our business. When I moved to Kodiak Island in the late 1980’s I began a kayak touring business featuring day trips along the rock coast of this incredibly beautiful island.

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.

Today, I still try to share my love of sea kayaking through freelance writing including regular columns for “Guidelines” at paddling.net and as the Camping 101 editor at Sportsmansguide.com. I also have written kayaking related articles for Fish Alaska, Alaska, Sea Kayaker, and other consumer magazines.

That love of sea kayaking is expressed within these pages. Enjoy!

And remember…

Be safe; have fun out there!
