Let South Coast Tours take you on an adventure paddle in the Wild Rivers Coast estuaries and out into the Southern Oregon near shore ocean. Go fishing, wildlife viewing or just simply enjoy the experience of gliding across the waterways of the banana belt coast of Oregon. The south coast holds much of Oregon's near shore reefs and some of the best fishing, photography, wildlife viewing and wildest rivers on the west coast. South Coast Tours offers a variety of fully equipped 2-18 person tours as well as custom overnight kayak tours. SCT offers kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and kayak fishing from the Coos Bay area down to the California border and Brookings Harbor. We also rent kayaks and sups out of our base camp on the docks in Brookings.
