Anne and I just wanted to say thank you again. The sunset kayak trip was the highlight of our trip to New Brunswick. We were happy that we got to see the eagles, harbor porpoise and seals and the scenery too. That the other two couples were so nice added to our experience and we look forward to them e-mailing the pictures to us.

Once again, thank you for a wonderful experience and you can rest assured that I will be letting some friends who kayak know about Seascape Kayak Tours.

Baja is a Must DoApril 28th, 2010

Paddling the Baja coast is a ‘must-do’ trip for any kayaker, however being able to travel through the area with our Seascape friends greatly enriched the adventure. Once again, Seascape’s focus on creating an experience that immerses their clients in the wonders of an area’s spectacular natural environment and complex cultural communities formed the core elements of the first SeaStar trip. Challenging ‘push’ days were mixed appropriately with ‘lighter’ days that allowed for exploration and relaxation. The Seascape guides were superb, the food plentiful and nutritious, and the paddling locale was awe-inspiring! Looking forward to the next SeaStar adventure!

Brilliant CombinationJanuary 21st, 2010

I’ve returned from the Jan ’10 KaYoga trip a couple of days ago and still can’t stop thinking about it.

Combining kayaking and yoga is brilliant. The two practices build on each other philosophically, making the whole experience richer than the sum of its parts. And there is a more earthly benefit, too: Because of the yoga, I felt no pain or stiffness at all from the paddling.

Bruce is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and devoted instructor and guide. His deep love of the sea—and of the natural world in general—is infectious. And he is the most patient teacher I have ever met, answering the same questions over and over, never exhibiting even a hint of annoyance. He pays close attention to each individual and his/her needs, which made us all, regardless of our level of experience or ability, feel comfortable and relaxed on the water and on land from beginning to end. He’s also a terrific cook!

Lauri’s yoga instruction is warm and supportive. She also pays an extraordinary amount of attention to each individual, tailoring every pose to each person’s needs and abilities. But her caring doesn’t end when the yoga practice closes. She’s always watching, always caring, always supporting. Ahhh. “It’s all good,” she says. And it really is.

Logistically, every step of the trip was beautifully executed. All the connections were flawless, and every single person we dealt with was friendly, professional, and helpful.

In closing, I want to express my appreciation for your ability, Bruce, to convey a sense of place during the trip. On the plane home I sat with a couple who’d been on the Windstar when we were there. They had a nice enough time, I think, but they knew nothing of the places they’d been, not even the names. They did not recognize the word “Curú.” And when I asked about the highlights of their trip, they said vague things about seeing a lot of crocodiles in one place and monkeys in another. Sensing the superficiality of their experience made me realize and appreciate anew just how deep mine was. Muchas gracias, again.

I came home with a profound appreciation for the deep and outrageously positive experience I had. Muchas gracias to Frances, Bruce, Lauri, and todos mis amigos del mar.
