SEASCAPES-Fall 2013

CTC-2

Fall is a time of transition and change. Days slowly become shorter and the air feels crisp. All things wild are busily preparing for the upcoming winter, and many of our summer residents will begin making their way south…

Our summer season in Canada began with a wonderful staff training, which was unfortunately followed by the unexpected serious illness of a young staff member – Noah Latchem. Due to the power of the eagle and the dedication of a super medical team, Noah was able to make a complete recovery. Noah has written a story about Seascape, which has been featured in major newspapers across Canada. You can read his story here. Pura Vida amigo…

Our talented leadership team around the world prides itself on providing guests with a deeper understanding the interconnectedness of the dynamic environments on which we paddle.

Denise Neumann Fuhr captures her multi day experience on the Bay of Fundy…

My time with Seascape Kayak Tours was sheer perfection. From start to finish, I felt cared for and welcomed. Guy, my guide, provided a paddling experience that was more than professional…it was personally tailored to my needs, my abilities, and my love of the natural world. 

I found myself blessed with numerous marine mammal sightings and awed by fledgling bald eagles who entertained as they awkwardly took to flight. 

I feel blessed to have discovered this company… I could have asked for nothing more than exactly what I received.

Fall Impressions

Three new folks joined the Seascape team in 2013… Harry Daley and Angela Tomney in Canada and Thomas Enderlin with our operations in Costa Rica. I have asked each of them to share their impressions of the Seascape experience…

Canada

The summer here on the Bay of Fundy is short, and we often complain that it passes too quickly. Angela and I took the short drive from Saint John to Seascape’s base on Deer Island every weekend, and we were worried that this busy schedule would only excel an already short summer season. Fortunately the opposite was true. While spending time in the Fundy Isles, practicing yoga in the shop, and accompanying guests on the Bay, time seemed to slow down; we did not take a single moment for granted.

Costa Rica

From a young age I have always been drawn to the water. In its infancy, this fascination involved puddles and streams, eventually growing to larger bodies of freshwater, and then the mighty ocean. And I haven’t looked back since.

Often people arrive in Curu Wildlife Refuge on Costa Rica’s North-Pacific coast unsure of what to expect. They know that their trip involves some sea kayaking, but I frequently wonder how aware they are that this experience will require navigating a self-propelled vessel in the open Pacific. Upon realizing this people are often a little apprehensive. They are fine with Curu’s abundant wildlife and stunning secluded beach, but are they really ready for an oceanic journey?

* * * TRIP IN DEVELOPMENT * * *

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 of the world’s most remarkable places then this could be the adventure you’ve been longing for!
