A unique way to explore the Noyo River Valley. Ride the Skunk Train from Fort Bragg to Northspur. On the return from Northspur, disembark from the train to kayak 2.5 miles on the Noyo River Estuary back to Fort Bragg.
Participants must make reservations by 2pm the day prior to the trip. Space is limited so early registration is recommended. Here's a link for reservations.
The Skunk Train departs at 10am from the Depot in Fort Bragg. Participants enjoy a scenic trip into the redwoods with a lunch and turn around stop at Northspur. Participants can pack a picnic lunch or purchase one at Northspur.
On the return trip, the train stops before its last crossing of the Noyo River. Tracks to Kayaks participants are greeted there by their kayak guide (Cate or Jeff). A quick paddle lesson is then followed by a 2.5 mile leisurely paddle down the Noyo River to Dolphin Isle. While paddling, learn about the wildlife and ecology of the Noyo River watershed. The 2.5 miles takes approximately 1.5 hours and is then followed by a shuttle ride back to the train depot.
This is a dry and mild kayak tour in tandem kayaks. No experience is necessary. Children must be 8 years of age to participate. The cost of the trip is $119/person and $94/child (ages 8-12).
