A word from founder Bruce Smith

“Welcome to Seascape Kayak Tours. This company began as an outgrowth of my passion for paddling, outdoor education and sharing special marine environments with others. I love introducing people to wild places and helping them feel comfortable and reach their potential on the water. Whether you choose to join us for a sunset paddle, a day trip or an extended expedition, you will travel with just a few others, in a safe, sensitive and environmentally sound manner.”

Shared PhilosophiesMarch 4th, 2009

We first paddled with Bruce (Seascape) a few years ago in the Bay of Fundy / New Brunswick and made an instant connection. We trust Bruce and share the same philosophies on sustainable travel, safety, risk, fun and adventure.  We knew that a trip with Bruce would be an experience that would be unique and would encompass people, culture and a love and respect for the natural environment. We experienced all of these things and so much more!

Modify on the GoMarch 4th, 2009

Over the years my family has traveled with Bruce and Seascape from whales to icebergs to crocodiles. The one constant has been Bruce’s uncanny ability to generate local involvement year-after-year, including local people as an integral part of the Seascape family, with them being of as much importance to the trip experience as anything physical or visual. Bruce and Seascape’s ability to modify trips on the go, melding them to clients’ skill, comfort level and interests has also provided us with vastly different trips within the same geographical area. We are usually one of the first groups to explore new areas with Seascape and look forward anxiously to the next opportunity.

Meaningful MemoriesJanuary 27th, 2009

Having never set foot in a kayak before, I was prepared for a pleasant adventure and returned to Tambor Tropical’s sandy beach refreshed (even though it was the beginning of the day) and genuinely connected with the beauty of the bay. The bay’s resident pelicans are a joy as they dive for fish, yet I had never observed them from the water while they remained perched in the trees lining the bay. We had clear water so I could view both the swarms of young fish and local Costa Ricans fishing in water up to their waists. In his gentle manner, Bruce provided pertinent technical information about the birds, fish and monkeys (including Tanya the spider monkey who resides within the Curu Wildlife Reserve) that made memories of the trip more meaningful.
