Kayak Mendocino Sea Cave Nature Tour

Leaving Van Damme cove, our first 2 caves are filled with sea stars and vibrant algaes. The paddling is smooth and easy and the naturally formed channels allow us to stay well out of the wind and surf. We round the corner and exchange looks with Harbor Seals, viewing them in their pure and natural state. Heading north and hugging the sandstone cliffs, the black oyster catchers screech and call each other to announce our arrival and their meal for the day. Narrow coves and passageways lead over the clear blue green shallow water as we make our way towards our last cave. Two dark chambers stretch eastward and let us savor different views of the openings. Colorful invertebrates make their home here and the dripping fresh water offers a cooling rinse. One more cove and channel and we turn around and paddle and float easily back with the current.
