This strength based, fun, dynamic, natural and creative program will use the powers of the local environment as a catalyst and stage for teens to focus on commandeering their own life journey. Just as in daily life, students will be met with high spirited and dynamic challenges that will characterize their orientation and exploration of the power of choice, innovation, vision, ownership and personal leadership. Our experiences are led by a fun and highly skilled group of professional guides.
Millions of years of glaciations have gradually carved away a coastal plateau creating Prince William Sound and its many tributary fjords, passageways, islands, and rocky shores. Fewer than 10,000 people populate the towns of Whittier, Valdez, Cordova, and native villages, and no roads connect these communities. Encompassing 7,000 miles of ocean, river deltas, tidal flats, and glaciers, Prince William Sound is a sea kayaker's paradise. Snow capped mountains shelter the sound from outside influence and protect a rich diversity of life. Bears, eagles, sea lions, seals, orcas, porpoise and countless birds feast on the most productive salmon runs in the world, while humpback whales gorge all summer on plankton in preparation for their winter journey to their Hawaiian breeding grounds. We begin our journey in Anchorage and continue on to Whittier, where our expert guides will provide sea kayaking instruction and trip preparation for this unique expedition and truly "once in a lifetime" Alaskan adventure.
Explorations will be directing this expedition in collaboration with Breakwater Expeditions, a team of highlyskilled outdoor professionals with years of experience in developing and leading adventure programs and expeditions for young adults, teens and families.
