North Cascades National Park Multiple Day Kayak-Sailing Tour

Location North Cascades National Park, Washington, USA
Experience unavailable
Overview
Diablo Lake and Ross Lake make a perfect settings, with turquoise waters and towering mountains the area is truly picturesque, however what make the area so perfect are the predictable winds. Pressure changes caused by the Sun’s heat passing over the Cascades cause winds that rise out of the West every afternoon. While canoes and kayaks are advised to seek shelter before this predictable event, sailing kayaks can take advantage and adventure all day.

This entire trip is about interacting with nature. Harnessing the wind to slide, near effortlessly, across the water. Novice sailors will learn the basics while seasoned sailors will delight in the thrill and beauty of the area.

An all inclusive Sailing-Kayak, camping tour for all experience levels, sail the turquoise waters of Diablo Lake and explore the backcountry of the national park. Interacting with one of the most beautiful environments in North Cascades National Park.
We begin with “ground school”. Before entering the water you will be able to operate a sail and make necessary adjustments. People often assume that this is a time consuming operation, but as the operation is very easy, it normally only takes a few minutes.

Next the group will launch into the water. Winds tend to be light in this area as it is sheltered, making for a great place to practice steering while adjusting sails to match the change.
After a brief on water practice, the group is ready to venture out. Passing under Highway 2 we head north. This requires “tacking” into the afternoon wind in order to reach the main body of the lake.
Throughout the tour your guide will be nearby to give you advice if needed, but also interpretive discussion on the area, insights into the park, and entertaining stories.

The following days continue on into Ross Lake and deeper in to the backcountry of the National Park
