Happy New Year… Feliz AnoJanuary 10th, 2015
Time flies.. November and December have been exceptionally busy months.
In November I was very fortunate to have been invited to teach a WFR course for the Cree First Nation in northern Quebec, Canada . It was nice to have a real taste of winter and to reconnect with my Cree family.
The last Tauck group trips in Costa Rica went smoothly with the assistance of Mariano Salazar. Mariano, is a Costa Rican guide with a wealth of experience in the paddle sports industry. Day tours have been fast and furious, the most recent with a family from Montreal who enjoyed paddling out to Islas Tortugas and exploring the colorful underwater world.
January will continue to be busy with multi day experiences. Due to new park regulations camping will no longer be permitted at Reserva Curu. Therefore, most of our multi day trips will be lodge- based experiences in 2015. Returning to the wonderful accommodations at Tambor Tropical following an exciting day of paddling will not be a hardship. Prior to returning to Canada in the spring we will develop a number of sea kayaking and camping experiences for die hard adventurers.
A private Mar al Mar trip will run January 7 -15 and will incorporate the best paddling environments on both Caribbean and Pacific coasts. A lodge – based Islas del Golfo trip will take place January 21-28. ( 6 nights accommodation at Tambor Tropical and 5 days sea kayaking)
Spaces still remain.
In 2014 we developed a new paddling itinerary in the South Pacific – Azul y Verde. The trip allows paddlers to explore both Drake Bay and Golfo Dulce and be immersed in Corcovado National Park. The trip was selected by Explore magazine as one of the best new adventure trips for 2015..
As always lots going on both on and off the water..
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are considering a warm water adventure this winter..
