The Caribbean Island of Dominica

 

TRAK Kayaks  /  7 Min Read  /  Adventure, Kayaking

 

 

Love the idea of tropical paddling, but not sure how to explore "off leash" from the resort? Learn the best practices for engaging locals, navigating an open coastline, and leaving the land as a clean as you found it on the Dominica Tour.

TRAK Pilot Weston Moses believes that Dominica is a paradise for sea kayakers looking for an authentic Caribbean experience. His Soufriere Guesthouse engages local guides in a setting less focused on conspicuous consumption and intoxication, and more on building a genuine connection to the sea and between people. Unleashed vitality is just a side-effect! 

 

Weston Moses hails from the high country of Colorado, but has called Dominica home for a number of years now after falling in love with the Caribbean during his time as a humanitarian aid worker. Weston recently recorded the first circumnavigation of Dominica by sea kayak, and he is now inspiring others to explore his adopted home and discover some of the best warm water paddling anywhere in the world. 

The Caribbean is a vast region, with many distinct peoples and languages, various biomes, and countless islands ranging from large and biodiverse to little more than a sandbar. 

Dominica is one of the true gems of the Caribbean, yet also relatively unknown among typical holidaymakers. Jamaica, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic are generally hailed as the “big three” destinations to visit in the region, with Dominica enjoying a quieter junction between the Windward and Leeward Island groups.

TRAK is very pleased to partner with Weston in announcing an eco-paddling skills progression camp, based out of the Soufriere Guesthouse in Soufriere, Dominica. A healthy mixture of “fun in the sun”  invigorating paddling, tropical relaxation, healthy organic fare, and a kayaking skills progression geared towards warm-water ocean paddling & LNT principles.
