Trip Info

Watch the sun set and the stars emerge from one of the best vantage points in Northern California – a kayak in Tomales Bay. See the day turn to dusk in the company of seals, osprey and kingfishers, and watch wildlife emerge as the moon rises across the calm waters. Marvel over the moon’s reflection on a clear night, or catch a unique bioluminescence light show as organisms flicker light underwater at certain times of the year.

Your adventure awaits!
