We offer guided eco- tours on Humboldt bay, on all of our local rivers, as well as guided whale watching trips in Trinidad Harbor. Our kayak rental shop is ideally located, on the water at the end of Woodley island.
within minutes of leaving the Humboats dock you’ll find yourself paddling alongside dozens of Harbor seals and an infinite variety of shorebirds. Humboldt Bays water trail system takes you past ancient native american village sites still evidenced by the white shell middens. Raptors such as Hawks, peregrine falcon, bald and Golden eagles can be seen daily soaring through cloudless skies above the bay. At low tide one can even catch a glimpse of the schooner wrecked and abandoned by the author Jack London. It lies half sunk in the tidal flat, and accessible up close with a kayak
