Robert Schrack, co-owner of Adventure Crafters with his wife, Kerrie, believes that every paddling experience should be fun, safe and respectful of the environment. That philosophy, plus his enthusiasm for kayaking, has fueled Adventure Crafters kayak programs since 2004. When he isn't paddling or teaching in the Chesapeake Bay or on the Atlantic Ocean, Robert trains with top coaches in the US and UK. He has paddled the tidal races of Penrhyn Mawr and North Stacks in North Wales, volunteered at Sea Kayak Georgia's BCU Week, and taught and guided trips in Roatan, Honduras for Uncommon Adventures. Robert is an  Open Water Kayak Instructor with certifications in CPR, Wilderness First Aid and Canoe Safety.

If looking for excellent sea kayaking instruction in the mid Atlantic region, look no further than Robert Schrack. Robert has been a long term sea kayaking student and instructor going on two decades. He values the continued honing of skills and sees on water development as a way of deeply understanding the water and the art of paddling


Robert came to sea kayaking as an avid outdoorsman with excellent mountaineering, snow sport and sailing skills which reflects in the name of his company. Sea kayaking is a natural extension of who he is as an athlete and instructor.  Fortunate to have excellent people skills, Robert communicates a humble, empathetic and honest style with his students in a productive way. He puts every effort into instructing with humility and fun with challenge as a way of self discovery.

I took multiple classes with Robert a few years back . If you are going to be on the water I highly recommend working with Robert. I had basic skills when I started with him but he quickly upped my game. I was involved in doing multi day open water trips with several other people throughout the Delmarva region and can honestly say without his teachings we couldn’t have pulled off some of the trips. He has a way of teaching that just works. I started off having him teach me how to roll and self rescue techniques and then as a team we worked with him on group issues. We learned how to work together safely as a group and proper procedures for group rescue and many other safety issues. While thankfully we never had any very big issues we did have some smaller ones and it seemed second nature on how to handle them after Roberts instruction. If your new to the sport or just looking to advance your skills I highly recommend Adventure Crafters for all needs. Thank you Robert for all you’ve done over the years.

I've been searching for the right person to help me take my kayaking skills to the next level, and Robert delivered on all points. He absolutely loves what he does, and it's reflected in how he trains his students. Robert is a treasure of knowledge, patient and adapts to the student based on their learning style. I learned so much and look forward to taking more lessons with him. If you want to learn how to be an excellent paddler, Adventure Crafters is the place to go.
