Dale Christensen has been an avid kayaker for much of the past decade. He has circumnavigated Whidbey Island and kayaked the waters of Fidalgo and Camano Islands, Kyuquot Sound and the Pacific Rim National Park areas of British Columbia, and the Olympic Peninsula. He has co-taught Sound Waters classes for the past several years, and hosts occasional kayak safety training classes on Deer Lake. One of his great thrills is catching salmon from his kayak....without a net! He will share information about how to get started kayaking on Whidbey, equipment and safety tips and day trip routes along with a few anecdotes thrown in for good measure.
