Tomales Bay, at 12 miles long, is the largest protected bay in Point Reyes National Seashore. It's home to harbor seals, bat rays, leopard sharks, and the majestic tule elk. The best way to witness these amazing animals? From the quiet calm of a kayak gliding along the bay. This 4 mile paddle is perfect for those with a little bit of prior paddling experience-- we'll bring all the necessary gear and a refresher on kayaking basics before getting started. Come see some of Earth's finest creatures with cheery and adventurous new friends. It's going to be so much fun!

  • Enjoy a great day on the water
  • Gain a unique vantage point on the topography and ecology of the region
  • Catch a glimpse of harbor seals, bat rays, leopard sharks, osprey, egrets, pelicans, and tule elk
