Leah Blok

If kayaking warm tropical waters appeals to you don’t miss the Comox Valley Paddlers Club first meeting of the season.

On Thursday October 6th Leah Blok, a lead guide with ROW Sea Kayak Adventures, will speak on paddling in Baja and Cuba.  Baja’s Loreto Bay in the Sea of Cortez hosts blue whales and fin whales and Cuba is a relatively new destination for kayakers.

Leah used to believe she could talk to whales.  Years later, she still believes it, but realizes that the whales probably do not understand her.

Growing up near Vancouver, Leah spent hours of her life in and beside the ocean and with that came a great love and respect for water.  Her dad took her on her first kayak expedition to Clayoquot Sound at 16 years old. Big crossings, big bears, big swells and one naked man with a spear…and she was hooked.
