Your day will start at Heart’s Desire Beach at 9am, where we will unload all of your camping gear together. (You should have no problem fitting all of your essentials if you pack “backpack style”) Once unloaded, we will divide group gear amongst our kayaks and then load personal gear.  After we are all loaded, we will paddle to the Point Reyes National Seashore for a beautiful morning of exploring before we make it to the beach that we will call camp.  Your guide will be available to help with questions as you set up camp, then you have the day to yourself to enjoy whatever you would like (hiking, swimming, more kayaking, exploring the intertidal zone, reading, relaxing, ect…) 

The group will take down camp and load kayaks at 8:30am on Sunday.  We will take our time looking for wildlife and talking about the history of the area on our way back to Heart’s Desire Beach. This adventure typically concludes at 11:30am.
