Kayaking on the Pacific coast can be a wonderful experience. The trick is to find a nice calm day and the right location. If you have never kayaked before we suggest looking for an experienced guide. On the Mendocino Coast a great guide that I found was Kayak Mendocino. Kayak Mendocino provides professionally guided sea cave tours and more at Van Damme State Park. You will experience sea mammals, shoe birds, harbor Seals and many other sea creatures!! All ages are welcome and no experience is required.
