Each November, the Pacific gray whales begin their southern migration from the arctic waters of the Bering Sea on their way to the warm lagoons of Baja, returning north through the month of March. We have the unique chance to witness the grandeur of these endangered creatures as they pass through the waters of Santa Monica Bay. The best way to witness these amazing animals? From the seat of a kayak above these deep and intricate waters. This 4-5 mile paddle is perfect for anyone. We'll bring all the necessary gear and go over kayaking basics before getting started. While there's no guarantee of seeing whales, we'll be accompanied on the water by many more types of sea life, such as sea lions, harbor seals, pelicans & if we're lucky, dolphins! Please note that this environment has rolling water which can lead to motion sickness.
