Van Damme to Russian Gulch

Van Damme State Beach* is located 12 miles south of Noyo Harbor on Highway 1. Parking is free and it is less than 50 yards to the water. This launch site has excellent protection and seldom presents a surf launch. This site features extensive rock gardens, sea caves and kelp beds. Many small islets dampen the swells and provide some protection from the waves. There are very good reasons that this is one of the most favored kayak launching sites and paddling destinations on the Mendocino Coast. Guided tours are available by contacting: Lost Coast Kayaking, (707) 937-2434 .

Places to Kayak - California

The following access sites and descriptions are for planning purposes only. Conditions may change so stay alert and check carefully before starting a trip. Be prepared to abort your trip if conditions suddenly deteriorate. Sets of significantly larger than average waves may develop at any time. Most of these sites are not suitable for inexperienced kayakers. It is mandatory that kayakers wear wetsuits whenever paddling in these ocean sites. Helmets are necessary when paddling in surf and in sea caves and encouraged elsewhere. Paddlers should carry a spare paddle in the event their primary paddle is broken or lost. A Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (life jacket) and efficient sound producing device (loud whistle) are required by law. Carry plenty of drinking water. This is only a partial list of safety equipment that you should carry.
