2018 Abalone Camp Package


Little River Inn is pleased to be offering the 4th annual ABALONE CAMP experience from Sunday, June 24 to Tuesday, June 26, 2018. The ABALONE CAMP package offers avid divers and novices alike a rare opportunity to dive with some of the most renowned freedive guides in the region for the prized local delicacy during Northern California’s peak Abalone Season. The dive will be followed by a demonstration on how to clean and prepare the collected bounty, culminating in a gourmand feast prepared by the Inn’s chef.

This two-night experience includes:

  • Accommodations in an ocean view gas fireplace room.  We suggest lodging on Saturday, June 23 if you are not within 3-hour driving distance from Little River Inn.
  • Brunch and Orientation on Sunday, June 24
  • Welcoming reception on the evening of June 24 for all participating divers and their guest complete with delectable passed appetizers and local beer and wine selections
  • Breakfast on Monday, June 25
  • All necessary dive gear and equipment needed for the dive
  • Two days of diving with the guides from Triton X/Freedive Shop (the first day will include being fitted for wetsuit/gear and getting acquainted with dive location; day two will consist of the actual Abalone dive lasting up to three hours)
  • Bagged lunch for the day of the dive
  • Assistance  with the cleaning, cutting, and pounding of caught abalone
  • Cooking demonstration and communal dinner of the day’s hunt back at the inn with fellow divers and guides from Triton X/Freedive Shop
