Kayaking, Canoeing and River Rafting

With the Eel River so close by, you can’t leave Fortuna without experiencing some of the amazing watersports. For any novice kayakers there’s a reasonably easy run from Myers Flat to where the South Fork enters the main tributary. You can also book a tour with guides who know the best places to raft and kayak, along with the prime areas for spotting wildlife. It’s even possible to kayak out to Trinidad Bay to see seals and sea lions, while whales have been known to make an appearance from December through to May.
