West Coast Ocean Canoeing – Women Of Courage

Join a group of supportive women on an inspiring and challenging adventure of healing.

This canoeing journey will take you through ocean waves and along the shores of ancient rainforests. In the evenings, after a day full of adventure, you will debrief your day sitting around a campfire on a sandy beach. Your instructors will help create a supportive space to increase self-esteem and self-reliance, build supportive relationships with other women, enhance body awareness and build physical strength.
