Tomales Bay Day Trip

Tomales Bay is a paddler's dream. With pristine water, beautiful scenery, and plentiful wildlife, your group will experience first hand this remarkable jewel of west Marin County. During your trip your group will first learn the basics of kayaking, then explore Tomales Bay by boat, meandering along the shoreline and likely stopping on one of the many sandy beaches. This trip is great for novice to advanced paddlers of varying abilities and backgrounds.

Trip Overview

The trip will begin with an opening circle, giving the Guides an opportunity to meet your group and orient them to the plan for the day. Next, the guides will instruct the group on paddling and safety and accommodate any special needs before getting on the water. Depending on the length of the trip and the group's paddling abilities, there are several different paddling routes, and all are great for exploring the unique environments of Tomales Bay. If time allows, we’ll stop on a beach for lunch or head back to Heart’s Desire to lunch on the beach where we started. Once we are done paddling, together as a team (if ability and timing allows) we’ll put the kayaks and equipment away before finishing our trip with a closing circle.
