Progression and Exploration - Cannery Row: Group and Incident Management


This journey starts from the beautiful Monterey Harbor and heads out to Lover's Point and back. We will get to practice in some rougher, choppy conditions, all while paddling alongside sea lions and harbor seals. This trip explores some of the most beautiful coastline on the California coast.

This trip introduces group and incident management.  We will discuss pod dynamics, hazard and risk assessment, and how to manage real life rescue scenarios.

Our lunch is only a couple of miles away at picturesque Lover's Point. Lover's Point often has outstanding clarity and we are often checked out by some sneaky harbor seals. The trip home will have the wind at our back and will be a fantastic opportunity to hone our communication skills, as well as our bracing technique. We will be on the water for approximately 5 hours.
