About Del Norte

September 3, 2014 Comments Off on About Del Norte

Del Norte County, The Real Northern California and part of America’s Wild River Coast, is world-renowned for its towering ancient redwoods, the pristine waters of its wild and scenic Klamath Smith rivers, world-class fishing, and exceptional bird watching. Located in the most northwestern corner of California on the rugged Pacific coast, its spectacular beaches, abundant wildlife, and majestic redwood forests provide pure unspoiled nature and a magical place to get away from it all.

Del Norte’s diverse ecosystems create a region with vast species of thriving animals, mammals and plants. Whether you’re a rugged outdoor adventurer looking for heart-pounding thrills and excitement, or someone who wants to take it slow and breathe in the fresh air and take in the soothing sights of nature, The Real Northern California is the place to hike, bike, boat, fish, swim, and just have fun. And it’s a place where you can spend endless days simply enjoying the wildflowers, birds, whales, and natural scenic wonders.

Del Norte is steeped in the History and Heritage of a rugged past. An amazing eighty percent of the county is Redwood National and State Parks, a perfect place to escape the stresses of daily life. It’s the Easter Lily Capital of the World and home to two Historic Lighthouses with dramatic stories to reveal. While driving through, you’ll find five main Cities and Towns but try not to sneeze or you miss them. Crescent City, the largest, is only 1.6 square miles. Be sure to check the Attractions, Outdoor Adventures and Events you can only find in this very special place.

Accessible, Beautiful, Relaxing Del Norte County Itineraries

September 3, 2014 Comments Off on Accessible, Beautiful, Relaxing Del Norte County Itineraries

If you to want relax on vacation by taking scenic drives through the redwoods and along the Pacific coastline, taking leisurely walks along an easily accessible beach or forest trail, witnessing the wildlife, or enjoying a local attraction, Del Norte County is the place.

Private vehicles can be driven slowly through ancient redwood forests and meadows filled with herds Roosevelt elk, birds and wild flowers. Look and listen closely. You might meet the soft eyes of an elk or hear the shriek of a hawk flying overhead. You’ll find lighthouses, tours, museums, art galleries and casual and fine dining. Lodging and RV Parks are both plentiful.

Day One

Start with a leisurely breakfast and map out the day over coffee. If the wind is calm and the tide is out, this might be a good time to do some beach combing. Agates, shells and other fascinating gifts from the sea can be found along Pebble Beach. Tide pools offer a chance to see and study forms of life found nowhere else.

Make it an ocean day by taking a tour of Battery Point Lighthouse, but be sure to check the tides first. If weather calls for Plan B, consider spending some time at the Harbor Art Gallery, or wandering through The Del Norte Historical Society’s Main Museum.

Remember that ocean air makes everyone sleepy, so leave time for a nap. After dinner, you could catch a spectacular sunset from Endert’s Beach Lookout. As the sun goes down the lights of the little town sparkle and reflect across the bay.

Day Two

If you’re fortunate enough to be here on a Sunday morning, the champagne brunch at Patrick’s Creek Lodge is legendary. The grounds are lovely –a photographer’s paradise.

Today, take the opportunity to view the extremes of our incredibly varied coastal environment.

Driving back down Highway 199, you’ll come to a botanical loop, a short walk that showcases the fascinating Darlingtonia, a carnivorous plant that thrives in serpentine bogs.

A few miles farther, and you’ll come to Walker Road in the Reed-Simpson Grove. Here sound is muffled by the thick, rainforest growth. Stop to take a short stroll along one of the many trails, or park at the end to watch the river. It’s a world of prehistoric dimensions, where ferns are six feet tall and trees disappear into the sky.

For a mind-boggling change from rainforest to coastal dunes, spend the afternoon at Tolowa Dunes State Park. This is a favorite hike for those who seek level trails with a large variety of wildflowers and wildlife, and a favorite area for both birds and birders.
Day Three

If you’re going to be in Klamath on a Saturday, make reservations for the Fun Bus Tour to Fern Canyon. The tour leaves at noon and takes several hours. The beautiful trip includes many opportunities to see elk and other wildlife.

On your way to Klamath, take time to explore the amazing trail through Trees of Mystery. Here are unusual growths and beautiful carvings, as well as one of the most complete collections of Native American baskets to be found anywhere.

For those who enjoy fishing, the Klamath River is easily accessible. Take Highway 169 to Klamath Glen, which is inland just far enough to be a little warmer than the coast. Here, too, birding and wildflower varieties are spectacular, and many birders add prized species to their list on a visit to Klamath Glen.

Anglers Choice Tidewind Sportfishing

June 20, 2014 Comments Off on Anglers Choice Tidewind Sportfishing

Tidewind Sport fishing is located in the Port of Brookings, 25 minutes north of Crescent City.  The Port of Brookings is noted to be one of the safest harbors along the coast due to the direction it faces.  The Port of Brookings harbor is also located in a cove, this gives us an opportunity to fish most comfortably.  A morning fishing trip is always fun and predictably fishable.  Later morning trips are available, weather permitting, for those who prefer a later start to the day.

Tidewinds has been here for 21 years and having fun all 21 of those years.  We as a family have been operating Tidewinds for the past 16 years.  Jim has always fished and operates the Super Star.  James, our son has grown up on the boats and operates the Bottom Line.  Kyle, our son-in-law has been working on our boats for the past 13 years and operates the Tidewinds.  We truly believe the family that fishes together stays together.

There are things that a consumer should know when choosing a charter.  First of all, not all passenger boat licenses are alike nor are all Captain licenses alike.

All of our boats are “Inspected Passenger Vessels”.  This is a higher standard that is designated and given by the U.S. Coast Guard.  The requirements to obtain this title are to be constantly met and maintained.  To maintain this high standard ALL of our boats are inspected both in and out of the water by the U.S. Coast Guard every year.

All our Captains have a 100 TON MASTERS LICENSE.  This license is a higher license and involves education, safety and experience to obtain from the U.S. Coast Guard.

You can call us anytime to ask us questions or make your charter reservation.  The phone does ring at home, and if you miss us leave a message and we will call you back.  You may also contact us through our website.  So don’t miss out on all the fun the Pacific Ocean has to offer, reserve your place today!

Let’s go Catchin’!
