This full day tour will take us to the waters where Tomales Bay opens up to the Pacific Ocean, an area with an abundance of wildlife, and an extremely low level of human infringement. Marine mammals such as seals and sea lions are commonly seen. Though such encounters are rare, whales and recently a sea otter have been spotted in this area of the bay. We will stop on a remote beach to enjoy lunch, and other activities, which may include tide pooling, photography, hiking to look for Tule Elk, paddling out the mouth to the ocean on calm days, and much more. Because strong currents may occur in this area of the bay, we consider this tour appropriate for strong beginner or intermediate paddlers.
