Kayak vs. Motor Boat Dangers on Film

Michael Rischer from captured a very close call with a motorized boat on a waterway near Portland, Oregon. Mr. Rischer has quite a few (38) fishing videos on YouTube, from a kayak, in the Portland metro area. Seems to be mostly gear fishing, but if you are into kayak fishing you may find it interesting. The safety considerations of operating a motor boat, bow in the air, must never be forgotten.

Kayak Fly Fishing & Nancie Battaglia’s Kayak Orgy

Photograph by Nancie Battaglia of the 1,925 kayaks and small boats that were combined as a record setting tribute/fundraiser to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A Guiness World Record, Inlet’s giant raft, which took about two hours to form, also had the purpose of raising money for breast cancer research (a charity called Susan G. Komen for the Cure)

As a related topic, how about not only clustering together for an awesome shot, but individually plying the waters in a kayak and fishing. Ken Morrow at Fish Camp Rehab and Ken Morrow Outdoors writes about fishing from the kayak and other small vessels. Check out Ken’s two sites and study up on fishing from that skinny craft as well as fishing with physical limitations. I had seen Ken’s site this morning and later, while at the doctor’s office, I saw the cool shot by Nancie Battaglia. Imperfect pairing  but you get the idea.


Cruises & Small Ship Voyages (No Big Ship Party Barge…Nature is Up Close and Friendships are Meaningful on a Small Ship)

ssv_logo_rgbBritish Columbia, Alaska, the Sea of Cortez, the Galapagos Islands, Euro River Cruises on and on are the small ship voyage venues.  Small Ship Voyages offer the most intimate contact with the environment and  the rewards of nature at its grandest, travel at its most relaxed yet sophisticated, and friendships with seasoned, educated travelers that will expand your horizons.

I have traveled on both the big ship as well as the small ship. There is no comparison between the two if your focus is nature, relaxation and the destination. If you want the crowds, confusions, neon, herd instinct then by all means take the big ship or pretend and go to the mall at Christmas time or Saturday. They are similar experiences. But, if you want a genuine naturalist to share the flora and fauna with, then board that zodiac as it departs the Small Ship to explore. Listen to the glaciers calv or take a deep breath as your sea kayak glides along some tropical back bay. Whales, whales and more whales. Glaciers, coral beaches, Euro canals and rivers….it is there at an intimate level that a seasoned traveler can appreciate.

Mary Jo Muncy, the owner of Small Ship Voyages, knows the destinations, knows the ships and has traveled many of the routes. She knows what it feels like to sit on a small ship off Cabo San Lucas on New Year Eve and watch the giant fireworks display, to dive with sea lions in the Sea of Cortes, to travel by zodiac amongst the ice flows of Glacier Bay.  To paddle sea kayaks and snorkel with the fish. She has twelve years experience with small ships and enjoys putting together group tours and romantic getaways. Honeymoons, anniversaries, a surprise sweetie moons, or show the ol’ girl you still love her, the Small Ship Voyage is the intimate ticket! Oregon Girls, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt love Small Ship Voyages!!!
