Discovering Osa – Golfo DulceDecember 13th, 2013

PADDLE-10Exploratory trips bring life back to its simplest level. A chart becomes a rudimentary guide for choosing paths across an area of water, and soon that leads to a remarkable freedom to embark in new directions.

Our experience in Golfo Dulce, one of the planets deepest and most pristine tropical fjords, has been nothing short of incredible. Amongst verdant forest-covered mountains toppling into the calm clear gulf waters we made many superb discoveries in our quest to create a new Seascape paddling itinerary in the Osa Peninsula.

PADDLE-4The wildlife encounters in this pristine environment have included countless toucans, scarlet macaws, monkeys, dolphins, sea turtles, kinkajous, crocodiles, and many others. Complementing these experiences have been our warm hosts at Saladero Lodge, who opened their home to us and shared many laughs and stories. Connections with coastal inhabitants (fishermen, biologists and conservationists) have also freely shared local knowledge, which will help immeasurably in bringing this unique adventure to life.

Update: Exploratory Trip – Osa Peninsula, Costa RicaOctober 25th, 2013

* * * OSA PENINSULA* * *

We engaged on an exploratory paddle to the Osa Peninsula on the southern Pacific coast with the intent on offering a trip to this special place. Since then we have offered this trip several times and a it has proven to be an exceptional paddling and wildlife experience.

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! Contact Bruce for details.
