Seakayakers Expedition Funds

The Seakayakers Expedition Fund was established in 2017 to encourage and support sea kayaking exploration by providing grants and gear to expeditions.

Grants awarded through the Seakayakers Expedition Fund are made possible through reader donations and members in the Seakayakers community. Gear and prizes have been generously donated by our partners, some of the best folks in the business.


Expedition grants are available to anyone who is planning an kayak expedition within a calendar year of June 1st, 2019. There are no restrictions on age, gender, nationality, or experience level. Awards can be used to support planned expeditions or to extend ongoing trips.

Your commitment

While the application is open to anyone, we ask that all awardees are willing to:

  1. Share a selection of photos and text from their expedition with Seakayakers and/or Expedition Fund partners.
  2. Respect the environment by following Leave No Trace principles while out on their expedition.
  3. Serve as a positive ambassador on behalf of kayakers everywhere.

Important dates

For 2019 grants the application must be submitted online before Tuesday, January 1st, 2019. Applications received after this time will not be considered. Winners will be announced in February 2019.
