Book a private session and you'll get this entire experience all to yourself--and up to three additional friends or family members. You'll enjoy more one-on-one time with the guide, more flexibility throughout the session, and a more personal experience for everyone who joins you. You register just yourself and the price covers all costs for up to 4 people. 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. 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!

  • Register just one person from your group and the price covers all costs for up to 4 people

  • Private sessions can accommodate up to four participants, but you'll only need to enter your own information when registering. We'll collect any details we need from the other participants on the day of the event.
