Robertson Scholars Alumni Sea Kayaking Expedition


Photos: Cass Colman, Tracy Baynes

Our first annual Robertson Scholars Alumni trip paddles in Alaska's world famous Prince William Sound. Reconnect with the Robertson community while exploring the land of the midnight sun. You will paddle past towering tidewater glaciers that moan and crackle, crystal-blue icebergs bobbing on the ocean's surface, and wooded coves perfect for camping.

The sea teems with various forms of life, and you'll have the ideal vantage point to view it all. Sea birds wheel in the sky overhead while tidal pools with starfish, anemones, and other small creatures dot the shorelines.

You'll work hard paddling with all your gear stowed in your boat, but you'll have opportunities to play as well. There are fish to catch and so many things to learn about in your explorations.

You'll hone your wilderness skills, have fun, make new friends and practice your leadership as you explore wild, wonderful Alaska.

"I have so many wonderful memories from my NOLS course: Waking up every morning to the wild beauty of Alaska, finding creative ways to keep laughing and dry after many days of rain, paddling through ice and camping near the base of a tidal glacier, getting to know a diverse group of people, and learning how to function as a cohesive and effective expedition."
