Event description

Description

Lucy and Mathilde’s 3 month kayaking expedition through the Inside Passage was not only to fulfil a dream of exploring the west coast of Alaska and Canada, but also to raise awareness of marine plastic pollution and promote women in adventure. They completed the entire journey without using single-use plastics, to encourage people to reduce their waste at home. Having never completed a kayaking trip together longer than 7 days, this journey was destined to be full of new challenges, laughs and long-lasting memories.

In their film 'Changing Tides,' watch as their two years of planning from the tropics of Australia develops into reality, and they leap into a wilderness beyond what they could imagine. Follow them on a journey of adventure, challenge, friendship and a deep love of the oceans blue.
