Liquid Fusion Kayaking features kayak tours, lessons, classes and kayak rentals of the Noyo River, Noyo Bay and the beautiful Mendocino coastline.  If you're traveling with kids, I highly recommend checking out the Noyo Meander Tour.

Noyo Meander - A Dry and Mild Guided Kayak Tour
The Noyo Meander is a dry and mild guided kayak tour on the calm waters of the Noyo River where all ages will be delighted by the surrounding nature and given an expert lesson on the wildlife and wonders all around them by owners Jeff or Cate, who are professionally trained kayak instructors, knowledgeable about the local wildlife and history, and love sharing the waters of the Mendocino Coast with others.  

On our recent kayak adventure, Jeff taught us everything we needed to know to feel comfortable on the kayaks and provided so much knowledge on the surrounding nature, it was like a field trip day for the kids - they learned so much from Jeff!

The placid waters of the Noyo River are a great place to learn to kayak if you're a beginner and kids will be delighted by curious harbor seals, amazed by gigantic sea lions, teased by quirky river otters, and intrigued with many coastal birds.

For this guided tour, you can wear your street clothes, paddle a tandem kayak, and enjoy a dry, comfortable ride.  You can rest easy knowing Liquid Fusion Kayaking’s expert guides Jeff and Cate will teach you the tricks and tips for kayaking and share with you the wildlife and wonders of the Noyo River.
