Lost Coast Trip/Kayaking Mendocino Sea Caves

What a fall. We took a trip up to the lost coast, launching from south at Westport. Perfect conditons and amazing paddling. We packed food, campgear and surfboards and scored perfect little waves and solitude. On another note, we are still paddling the calm smooth days at van Damme in Little river, and guests have been super happy with the conditions and experience. We will go year round and not miss a good day when anyone wants to join us. Please call in advance. Hope everyone is doing well. Now the big news. We are expecting our fisrt child, a little boy named Dylan. He will be out there paddling soon and growing up with the seals and seastars.

The World s Oceans are One

So close to the shore but so far away. We glide across the water and we skim through the caves. Less then a mile away cars whiz by and folks go about thier daily activities. We are off the land and have now become a part of the Worlds oceans. They are all connected. For all the appreciation we have, and all the joy we have been given from this environment, we must give back and be advocates to protect and save the seas. Please help in any way you can. Our lives and those of of our children and grandchildren depend on it, not to mention all the life inhabiting the waters.

"Everything and More"

Our guests love the tours. This is a quote from one recently after I asked how it was. The little seagulls are growing fast, seals happy and caves as inviting as usual. Now is the time to paddle. With 15 years of experience at Van Damme Little River it has become second nature to be there and show people a great time. guest from all over the world are enjoying the best kayaking in California , if not the world, and all easily done and with no great strain or investment required. What a life!!!!

Like God designed Little River for kayaking

We are so blessed to be able to paddle at Van Damme in Little River. We could not have designed it better. It allows us gentle, smooth, protected channels on almost everyday. It has just the right amount of excitement, challenge and sea life. The views are amazing in all directions. The winds help us to glide back from the trip. All is perfect. It is not to be missed. The baby seagulls are now hatched and Momma and Papa look very proud. Everyday I feel so fortunate to take locals and visitors alike out on this amazing trip. EXPERIENCE THE MAGNIFICENCE!!!!!

June Gloom

Yes it is that time of year when normally the fog and fog wind come around. It is here , but where we paddle and what we do is still magnificent and easy. One customer the other day said," You see what you normally would not and without leaving a footprint." Pretty cool. Please check out our web site for more images and general information.

Seagulls circus act and Deer

Today was classic. I paddled 2 tours to the north and they were great. Everyone love it. On one rock we came across 2 seagulls, one standing on the others back balancing. The one on bottom was wiggling, trying to get the other to climb down. What an act. I was laughing so hard. After a few minutes the silly bird climbed down. Soon after we saw a young deer down by the waters edge staring down a young seal. It was on the rocks, no grass in sight to eat, only salty water and seaweed. There is always someting different to see on our Kayak Mendocino Sea cave and nature tours. Hope you can join us soon. Craig

Weekly News and Views

June 11th 2008:

Our trips are running daily at Van Damme State Park in Mendocino, and the seals are welcoming us on every trip. I hear wow from so many customers and the smiles speak for themselves. It is such a special place and I feel fortunate to guide others through the caves and narrow passageways.
