Barry, Cascade and Coxe glaciers at Barry arm in Prince William Sound

This time I lead a trip in Prince William Sound, Alaska for 2 weeks. The route was incredible, the weather and sea life were the highlights of the expeditions.
Thank you to all the participants, co-instructors and NOLS Alaska for such a great experience.

Sea Kayak Passion

The glacier talks and the voice of it calls you to experience the past, every stroke you get closer, every stroke the otters and the seals come to welcome you, the ocean sings and you listen.



Glacier paddling is one of my passions.

Kayak: Avocet, valley kayak
Paddle: Greenland style carbon paddle by superior kayaks

Glacier balance brace

This time I decided to do a balance brace in the cold glacier waters of Alaska. The balance brace is one of my favorites skills to have. The Eskimos use this brace to hunt and to relax on the water.
