Klamath, CA - June 2, 2008 -- The Redwood National Park Hostel introduces the "Cruising with Kayak Zak" discount package, including two nights accommodation and a two-hour guided sea-kayaking trip for $105 per person.

Using single or tandem sit-on-top kayaks, guests embark with a professional guide on a birding and whale-watching tour of Trinidad Cove in Humboldt County. This trip is appropriate for beginners and includes a brief kayaking lesson. Wetsuits, helmets, lifejackets, windbreakers, and booties are also provided.

Guests are accommodated at the ocean-view Redwood Hostel, the only lodging available within Redwood National and State Parks, in shared rooms (private rooms are available at additional cost). The package also includes complimentary bottled water from Native Springs, a 100% Native American owned and operated company supporting Klamath River restoration.

The "Cruising with Kayak Zak" package is offered through August 28, 2008, subject to availability. Packages must be pre-purchased and reservations are required. To reserve, call the Redwood Hostel at (707) 482-8265.

Guests at the Redwood Hostel also receive coupons for $5 off kayak rentals at Big Lagoon County Park near Orick, California, courtesy of Kayak Zak's. The lagoon shares a 3.5-mile sand spit with the Pacific Ocean, and is 9 miles to circumnavigate. Shore birds and river otters are abundant, and kayakers who paddle up Maple Creek often see Roosevelt Elk grazing in the meadows.

Discount coupons are valid through August 28, 2008, subject to rental availability. Guests may request coupons at the Redwood Hostel upon check-in.
