We had an awesome time kayaking Port Orford Sound with Dave and Marcus. We had two double kayaks with our two kids (ages 8 and 4). The tour was relaxing but had enough paddling to ensure two tired kids at the end. We learned a lot about the area and were lucky enough to view 5 harbor seals and a gray whale!

My first time ever sea kayaking and only third time kayaking period. Katie was awesome at instructing a nervous rookie and got me safely around the route and back to shore. She also knew so much about the sea life we paddled through and by from Port Orford. The low tide provided excellent opportunities to view the sea stars and urchins. A very different and unique experience than exploring from the shore only!

The Whales and Wildlife boat tour was excellent. Our guide Dave was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. We appreciated the ecological approach to the tour and enjoyed seeing the wildlife. So glad we decided to do this tour.

We had an exceptional time kayaking the Rogue with Marcus. We went with our girls, 9 and 11, and had a great time. We felt very safe while still riding some good rapids. The river is beautiful and peaceful in between the rapids. Highly recommended.

I'm so glad that trip worked out for your family. I know there was a little nervousness, but the Rogue usually pleases all those who paddle!

We had a great time whale watching with Dave. He was very friendly and informative. After searching for about 30-45 min, we located a whale near Humbug Mountain. We watched for a quite a while and Dave even let us hang out for some extra time, so we could get the tail photo we were hoping for. The zodiac boat is great and the kids (11 and 14) loved the bumpy ride back to port. They said it was more fun than the jet boat ride on the Rogue.

Tyson led my husband and I on a stellar day on the ocean in the protected waters of the Port Orford Head. We have little experience on the ocean; Tyson helped us feel comfortable and confident. He is well-informed about the area, understanding short and long-term ramifications of protected waters and critters. He led us into areas between rocks and near caves that we would not have known to go. We are birders and hung out with a Murre about ten feet from us, bathing and frolicking. It was a real treat. On the outside rocks, we discovered a "scoop" of pelicans basking in the sun. On our way back, we spied a HUGE gray whale heading out through the "gate" formed by a gap between the headlands and Tichenor Rock. Extraordinary. Tyson also let us know about a couple of other very rich birding areas north. South coast Tours paddle in several places along the coast. We will go with the again for sure!

What a wonderful time my wife and I had on our tour of the Rogue River with Dave. Not only is he awesome as a tour guide, but we feel like we learned about trees, plants, wildlife, nature as a whole. He did all of the work and was very organized and professional. We also had a special trip filming and photographing our time for a commercial, and Dave's expertise made all the difference in getting great spots and shots. Highly recommend this experience.

While in Port Orford, we met 4 fabulous ladies during a hike and they mentioned they were taking a sea kayak trip the next day. We decided we’d like to go too. My husband called the number given to us by the fab 4 and left a voice mail message around 5pm. By 5:30pm the owner called back and got us all set up to go in the morning.
Cost was $95 per person and SO worth it.
Mike, our friendly, knowledgeable, humorous guide was fantastic. We have sea kayaked previously but hearing his explanation of the do’s and dont’s was delivered is such a wonderful way.
We were on the water for about two hours and I felt 100% safe the entire trip.
We saw so many amazing things, from a huge lions mane jelly fish to a plethora of shore birds. Harbor seals watched us in a sheltered cove.
I highly recommend South Coast Tours in Port Orford! If you’re anywhere near that town, it’s a must do.
Thanks South Coast Tours for making part of our vacation so special...

This is something that I've been wanting to do for a long time, & it exceeded my expectations!

We explored sheltered coves & ocean rocks, saw several types of jellyfish, rhinocerous auklets, a peregrine falcon family, & various pinnipeds.

My guide was lots of fun & very knowlegable about both kayaking and sea life.

They also offer fishing kayak trips, river trips, & SUP trips. I will definitely do this trip again, especially when we have visitors to the coast.

I've been out twice with South Coast Tours, both times in Port Orford. It's hard to describe how stunning the scenery is. If you haven't paddled the Pacific, this is the way to start. If you have, you may love the tour even more. The guides know a lot about the local ecosystem, and the animals you'll see in the water. If you see whales (I did both times), you'll never forget it. But even if you don't it will be a highlight of your trip.
