Pacific Coast Kayak Tour

The coast of Southern California is teeming with sea life – from bright orange Garibaldi, pelicans, and even bottlenose dolphins. The sandy shoreline opens up to the Pacific Ocean, with expansive views of the Channel Islands and coastal cliff sides. The best way to witness this amazing ecosystem? From the seat of a kayak floating along this deep and intricate waterscape. This paddle is perfect for anyone. We’ll bring all the necessary gear and go over 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!
