Sound Kayakers / Kayak Adventure
Sea kayak lessons, rentals and club, operating year-round on Long Island Sound since 1999. Based in Norwalk, Connecticut.  For information call/text 203-247-1390 or e-mail

Our kayak instruction & guiding is inspired by a lifetime of boating experience on Long Island Sound. I encourage you to take a lesson with me, then continue skill development through my Sound Kayakers club. Click on the links in the text below for detailed information.

Kayak Lessons & Club Trips has my 2018 Calendar, with descriptions of classes, listings of Sound Kayakers club trips, and a link to our fee schedule. The calendar is updated whenever there is a schedule change. Keep checking back!

Your instructor, Michele Sorensen, has taught sea kayaking year-round since 1999. Read quotes from clients, see a list of press, presentations and publications, and review her boating background and experience by scrolling down the instructor page.

We rent kayaks for our lessons, to qualified paddlers, and to Sound Kayakers' club members. About Our Rental Kayaks explains our rental policy and describes our boats, including our Ocean Kayak Malibu II sit-on-top tandem for family kayaking or paddling with a canine friend. We rent outdoor rack space to store your kayak (in East Norwalk.) Kayaks & Gear on Sale lists kayak gear for sale.

What to Wear & Bring advises how to outfit for kayaking in all seasons. We post the current water temperature, and have links to NOAA weather, local tides and a hypothermia chart. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact us. We're happy to answer your sea kayaking questions.

Join our club, Sound Kayakers, to take part in trips, safety clinics and kayak camping. Join the Sound Kayakers group Facebook page for news and event invitations. Follow me on Twitter @MicheleSorense2. Joining an active club is the best way for sea kayakers of all levels to improve their skills and meet other paddlers. We have decided to discontinue Meetup, as few who sign up actually attend.

Did you know that if everyone on Earth lived like an average North American it would take five earths to support us all? Find out how we do our part to live as globally fair citizens at Kayak Adventure's Sustainable Living Practices.

Happy and safe paddling!
