Tomales Bay Wetlands Tour

We welcome experienced and first time kayakers alike on this unique paddle. In celebration of the Giacomini Wetland Restoration Project, Blue Waters offers a one way tour through the beautiful wetlands at the south end of Tomales Bay. Your day will include a delectable wrap bar and a short hike with dramatic views.

This open space’s character is changing daily. Non-native grasses wither away under the onslaught of saltwater, while pickleweed and marsh plants take over. Ducks (sometimes thousands) dot newly created tidal ponds. Bald eagles and marsh hawks soar over egrets and herons wading in slow motion.

Tomales Point Exploration

Explore the beautiful shoreline between Hog Island and where the waters of Tomales Bay open up to the Pacific Ocean. This area typically has an abundance of wildlife, and an extremely low level of human infringement. This tour is 4 or 6 hours.

Drakes Estero Tours

Drake’s Estero is one of the most stunning places to paddle on the California coast. Departing from the former Drake’s Bay Oyster Co., we’ll glide by mudflats and through the eelgrass of this wilderness estuary. You might see harbor seals, bat rays, leopard sharks, and many bird species such as osprey, geese, white pelicans, loons, grebes, shorebirds and a variety of hawks. This tour is 4 or 6 hours.
