Launch from Hearts Desire Beach in Tomales Bay State Park and discover the pristine waters and abundant wildlife that make this a true wilderness paddling adventure. Whether spotting bat rays and harbor seals on a one-day adventure or camping overnight and gazing at the phosphorescence off the shores of Marshall Beach, you will delight in this stunning destination.
