Tidal Forest Tours
Incoming ocean tides push back on otherwise outgoing fresh water river flows, momentarily allowing us to reach further inland. We find that balance for easiest paddling and, most importantly, safe passage. Life is so much about timing, isn’t it?
Our tidal forests are dominated by salt-tolerant Sitka spruce, surrounded by deep tidal channels we paddle in which is where young salmon find abundant food and shelter from predators.
Tidal Forests are great place to be anytime, but in particular during afternoon tours when our coastal winds tend to pick up. Tree lines often form windbreaks and “wind shadows,” where its easiest to paddle.
