What Makes Us Unique
   
 

We only run a handful of trips each summer. This enables us to maintain program quality and consistency and to get to know each student on a personal level. Mike Dawson, the Owner & Director, is able to personally visit almost every trip - whether he is teaching sailing or just hanging out with the group.

Small Groups
Each trip is limited to 10 or 12 students. A small group assures individual attention, creates a closer, more cohesive unit, and activities run smoothly and efficiently. We also group students by age, and will never have a 13 and 18 year old on the same trip.

Responsibility
With help from instructors, students take full responsibility for the daily operations of their expedition. This includes everything from menu planning and cooking to navigating our way to an anchorage.

Seamless Transitions
Expeditions are carefully planned to maximize time in the backcountry, which means that, when possible, we seamlessly transition from one activity to the next without any van travel in between. This means less time loading gear and driving and more time exploring the wilderness.

Quality Time in Activities
It takes more than one or two days to gain confidence when learning how to sail, to paddle a kayak or to travel through the backcountry efficiently. When possible, we focus on each activity for as much time as necessary to achieve confidence and have a genuinely successful experience.

Motivated Students & Exceptional Instructors
We strongly believe that a key aspect to our success is limiting our enrollment to motivated and genuinely interested students. Some students find out about us on their own and others are encouraged by the friends or family to participate, but they all have in common their willingness to participate and to be a part of a amazing experience.

Exceptional Sailing Instruction
Our expeditions that have sailing components travel with one or two boats, maximizing individual instruction time. Since we operate in U.S. waters, we have to uphold the high safety standards set by the U.S. Coast Guard. Each boat is run by a USCG-licensed Captain. We are the only program of this kind that does this - and we believe that is the key to our success when it comes to sailing instruction. Similar programs that sail outside of U.S. waters are not required to have U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captains. Students that participate in an Williwaw expedition with a sailing component have a truly unique experience.

Teen Summer Camps
We first began our teen summer camp in 2001, with our Maine Wilderness Expedition combining backpacking, sailing, sea kayaking and whitewater rafting. Our adventure camps are truly unique expeditions that balance adventure, exploration and fun. We focus our teen summer camps on creating a fun and positive experience in a small-group setting.
