Went to Mendocino last weekend for a weekend tour/lessons with Eskape Sea Kayaking. We had used them when we first started kayaking, and learned a lot. Now we are going to their more advanced classes/tours (and they are one of the few kayak companies that does tours/classes at this skill level).

Conditions were pretty big for the entire weekend. For non-kayakers, that means the swells (waves caused by storms way out to sea) where quite large. Radio was reporting it as 8 to 10 feet. Made some areas too dangerous to go near, but also made some of the areas protected from the direct effects of swells to be fun to do.

Lots of caves/arches/tunnels to paddle through. They had various challenge levels, from super easy to ones that you needed to time the waves so that you didn't get slammed into a wall (or the ceiling).

I made a quick video showing some of the highlights from the weekend.

Your photos and motion pictures are really great. They made me feel at ease. For I am in a difficult condition. My mother passed away on Saturday September 5. I have pre-funeral(お通夜) tonight and the funeral (告別式) tomorrow.
So all of your beautiful scenery make me feel better under such situation.
Have you been anywhere else beside this tour? I'd like to see the ones if you have.
