Classes & Activities
Get your family together for a memorable paddling excursion at an unbeatable value! Kids kayak for free on these Family Fun Weekends. Our staff gives a brief safety talk and introduction to the boats, then your family can cast off our dock to lead your own adventure.
This course will initially concentrate on learning improved bracing. From there we will progress to combat roll instruction. This will be accomplished with a combination of individual instruction and practice time at the Arcata Community Pool. If one of these dates doesn’t work with your schedule please contact us about private kayak roll instruction.
Looking for a bit of a challenge, but aren’t ready to traverse steep mountains? The Lost Coast of southern Humboldt County is an area that is unique to the entire coast of California. It is the largest road less area on this coastline, with 25 miles of dynamic ocean views and un-crowded beaches. This trip takes place on the northern segment of the Lost Coast Trail. Though the trail is moderately level, the soft sand and traverse rocks make it an ideal challenge for any backpacker.
This course offers participants the opportunity to safely learn and enjoy the sport of surfing!

We will surf where the conditions are best for beginning surfers.
Hop into a raft or inflatable kayak and join us for a day of adventure on the scenic Trinity River. Explore exciting whitewater intermixed with serene, relaxing sections ideal for swimming and wildlife viewing. The section of river we choose will be dependent on river flows and conditions.
