The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity here at Seascape transitioning between Canada and Costa Rica, but we are wrapping up all loose ends and ready for paddlers here in Costa Rica.
The 2013/2014 season kicks off with a multi-day group over the US Thanksgiving holiday immediately followed by our exploratory trip to the Osa Peninsula in early December. Stay posted for lots of images, videos, and text from our trip to the Osa Peninsula!
Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends celebrating next week…

We will be engaging on an exploratory paddle to the Osa Peninsula on the southern Pacific coast with the intent on offering a trip to this special place in early 2014.
If you are unfamiliar with the area, National Geographic ranked the Osa Peninsula as “one of the most biologically intense places on earth”, and Jacques Cousteau called its magnificent Golfo Dulce (sweet gulf) the most pristine of the world’s four tropical fjords…
If you’ve dreamed of a sea kayaking and trekking experience in one of the world’s most remarkable places then this could be the adventure you’ve been longing for!

This is THE not to be missed tour, for experienced and novice paddlers alike. We spent the day paddling around the islands just off Deer Island, viewing the ever changing panorama, minke whales, bald eagles, harbor porpoises, and grey seals. Our guides soon became friends as they taught us about the salmon farms, lobster pounds (live storage), and fishing weirs still used today since being developed by the native Indians. They took us to a quiet cove and served up a great lunch of smoke salmon (not lox), cheese, apples, humus, etc. I want to emphasize that experienced paddlers need to be introduced to Fundy paddling with a guide because the tidal currents are like nowhere else, and the islands that had been your reference at low tide will disappear at high tide. Safety is a top priority for the Seascape team. We highly recommend Seascape. – Richard & Lisa Timm, Cornwall, New York
