we took a L2 Wet Exit and Rescue lesson and it was awesome! We didn't really know what to expect, but are preparing to do a trip to Desolation Sound soon and wanted to feel more prepared and comfortable in a kayak. Even though it was super nerve racking to force myself to capsize my boat, Tom and Robby were great teachers and totally supportive. It was actually fun to be in the water (with wetsuits of course). We learned how to get out of the kayak under water, how to get back into the kayak ourselves and how to rescue/help out others. Thanks Tom and Robby - we had a great time!
