Enjoy Mother’s Day in Shelter Cove CA.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner so now is the time to think about the perfect gift for mom. Since the charm of a boutique inn checks all the boxes, we suggest a visit to the Inn at Shelter Cove plus these activities.  

Book Inn of the Lost Coast. 

Shelter Cove Wellness Retreat 

Inn of the Lost Coast is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. Make the most of your California Lost Coast Mother’s Day with self-care services that renew the mind, body and spirit. Choose from yoga, meditation, sound healing, myofascial release, and more, available as classes and workshops or to book as custom services for your group or retreat (services provided by wellness partners). 

Tide Pools in Shelter Cove

There’s nothing like a visit to the Shelter Cove Tide Pools. Check the tide schedule in advance, there are two high and two low each 24-hour period. They will determine the time of your visit. Low tide is an exceptionally good time visit, as vast areas of reef are exposed. 

Shelter Cove Whale Watching

Surprise mom with a whale watching trip in Shelter Cove. The area’s natural resources and generous food supply make the northern California coast a rest stop for grey whales during their migration and birthing periods. It’s not uncommon to see females give birth or newborn calves swimming alongside their mothers. Whale watching in Shelter Cove peaks in April and May. 

Humbolt Botanic Garden 

The Humboldt Botanical Garden is a world-class botanical garden in the Northern California region.  The Gardens are constructed on a 44.5 -acre site south of Eureka near the Humboldt Bay adjacent to the College of the Redwoods. It’s the area’s unique location and climate, which is on the edge between two worlds – Mediterranean and the Pacific Marine – that allows for very diverse groups of plants to thrive, and the presence of plant species unique to the region. 

Hiking and Backpacking in Shelter Cove

Just minutes from the Inn of the Lost Coast, over 80 miles of trails span from beach to mountain peak and from dark forests to golden prairies. For the active and adventurous mom, enjoy trails from King Range Crest to the beach with 2,000-to-3,500-foot elevation changes. Choose your own adventure with these Shelter Cove hiking and backpacking trails/resources: California Coastal Trail Information, Lost Coast Hiking, Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Sinkyone Wilderness SP.
