Attracting paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts, audiences can expect a fun, social and entertaining event inspired by compelling films like:

• “Iceolation” -- Two people, two weeks, two kayaks. Sophie and Ewan took a self-supported journey via sea kayak to connect with an uninhabited land of ice and penguins in Antarctica.

• “Vitamin Sea” -- One woman’s record breaking standup paddleboarding journey, spans the entire length of the mainland U.K., 1,000 miles, from Land’s End to John O’Groats. “Vitamin Sea” documents positive ways to tackle plastic pollution, and how crucial our connection to nature is in driving positive environmental change.

• “Family Routes” -- In “Family Routes,” Leanne Robinson and Dwayne Wohlgemuth embark on a summer-long canoe trip across the Northwest Territories with their two sons, four-year-old Emile and one-year-old Aleksi. Together they face the challenges of living off the land and criticism from back home.

• “Skooks” – “Skooks” explores one of the fastest tidal rapids on the planet through the eyes of professional kayaker Nick Troutman.
