Eagles and seabirds swirl in the skies above the Salish Sea. Your feet crunch on the pebbled beach as you disembark from your kayak. What adventures await you on the shores of these sheltered, islet dotted waters teeming with seals, otters, orcas and pods of porpoises?

The Tide Pool Gloves are the perfect accessory for keeping your hands warm during a morning of paddling and beach combing. The swirling cables imitate the miniature eddies that form as the waves are sifted back through the stony beach, slowly refilling the tide pools and lifting your kayak to carry you to another adventure on the next island in the Salish Sea.
