Women’s Retreat - A 3-day Getaway in the Harpswells


Join H2Outfitters’ Cathy Piffath, for a dynamic and informative women’s retreat along the Coast of Maine. Cathy is one of the country’s foremost instructors in sea kayaking and canoe skills.

Recognized as one of the “finest technical paddlers in the country”, Cathy has been sharing her insights and knowledge with paddlers around the world since 1982. Cathy has trained and certified men and women in her role as Instructor Trainer Educator within the ACA, and in fact, she was instrumental in authoring the organization’s first sanctioned instructional curriculum for coastal kayaking. You will be working one on one with Cathy on the water and on land benefiting from her calm demeanor, approachable teaching style, and in-depth knowledge of the ocean environment. Evenings you’ll have free to enjoy a wonderful dinner at one of the local eateries, and relax in the comfort of a cozy Inn. With paddle and compass in hand you will come away with a fresh perspective and thorough understanding of the water-based skills you’ll need to enjoy sea kayaking safely.
