Maine-based H2O was founded 27 years ago on owner Jeff Cooper's core belief that "your ability to paddle, and paddle well, allows you to make intelligent decisions." All trips involve skills development (stroke technique, capsize recovery) taught by top-ranking instructors in "classrooms" like the Maine coast and Japan's Inland Sea.
