The kayaks that we completed are unique, beautiful, and were enjoyable to build. We definitely had a sense of achievement as each phase of construction was completed.
Our instructor, Jeff, was very knowledgeable and was able to communicate his love of craftsmanship and kayaks to us during the entire week.
The Chincoteague field station staff, led by Parker, were helpful, flexible, and fun. The accommodations, while dormitory in nature, were more than adequate. Meals at the field station were homemade and filling.
The kayaking field trips were well thought out, interesting and enjoyable. These trips included a variety of ecosystems found in the area. The staff was well-informed, accommodating, and willing to field all participant comments and questions.
The whole experience was practiced and professional.
