This paddle is perfect for those who have had some sea kayak experience and are looking to sea kayak and experience the rugged beauty of Mendocino's coastline. Conditions permitting, we will paddle into sea caves, rock gardens, and secluded coves. We will also paddle off shore and see the beauty of our coastal headlands from the ocean. Tips for wildlife watching and coastal paddling will be shared as we paddle.
Paddlers are expected to have taken LFK's Rock Garden Class (typically offered the Second Saturday of the month), have the equivalent of BCU 2 Star Skills, and be comfortable paddling at a 3 knot over 4-5 hours.
Paddlers may use their own sea kayak or rent one from us. Sea kayaks must be sea worthy with adequate flotation and properly fitting spray decks. Immersion wear (wetsuit/drysuit) is required for 50 degree water. Please contact us with any equipment questions.
Second Sunday Paddles are $60/person ($80/person if renting a kayak). Reservations are required and space is limited. Please call (707) 962-1623 for reservations.
