Kayaking Adventures

Paddling a Kayak in Noyo Harbor

 

“This is the best coastal kayaking in all of California! Paddling only four miles took six hours because there were so many caves, arches, wave pour-overs, sea birds and seals to check out,” said one visitor. “Big safe beaches to land on and launch from, and expert guides to take us safely through every feature.” From wild to mild, you’ll find kayaking adventures for every level of experience.

Two local outdoor adventure companies are ready to get you on the water.

Liquid Fusion Kayaking offers both instruction and guided tours for river and ocean kayakers. Several of Fort Bragg’s rivers are navigable by kayak, including the Noyo River.  Plan now for the Waves and Caves Weekends, Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekends 2012.

Sub-Surface Progression in Fort Bragg rents kayaks for both ocean and river exploration.

Ocean kayaking should not be attempted without some instruction. Gentle currents (check local tide charts) provide endless hours of family enjoyment along the rivers, viewing sea lions, harbor seals, and many species of birds. Liquid Fusion offers sunset bird paddles.

Many of you know that our Tracks to Kayaks trips have been derailed this summer due to a cave-in on the Skunk Train line.  We are excited that progress is being made to clear the tracks, and we hope to be back on track with August and September trips.  Until then we will continue with our daily routine of Whitewater of the Sea – kayak rock gardening adventures and Sunset Bird Paddles – evening wildlife and birding tours.

To wrap up summer and kick off fall – we look forward to our Mendocino Waves and Caves Labor Day Weekend.  This is a 3 day rock garden kayak trip that includes camping and food.  A special twist for our Labor Day trip is that we have some special friends with amazing culinary skills on board to host our camp and prepare meals.  Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested.
