Tomales Bay Camping Tour


Bioluminescence & Moonlight Camping Tours Every Saturday

$195/ person 

(includes bioluminescence or moonlight tour from camp)

10am (Saturday) – 10am (Sunday)

Tomales Bay Camping Permits are EXTREMELY LIMITED, and sell out as early as 6 months in advance. Accordingly, we have developed a group camping program which groups of 6 or less are invited to join. (Private camps can be set up for larger groups on any day by calling in)  We set up a waterside camp that is reached by a 2-3 mile scenic paddle, equipped with tables, camp chairs, camp stove, firewood for one fire, fresh water, and staffed by our capable and friendly kayak guides.  All that you need to bring is your FOOD for the trip, tent, sleeping bag/ pad, and anything else you would like to have on your adventure.  Arrive at 10am, load your gear on to our motorboat, and then enjoy the beautiful paddle to your campsite with your knowledgeable guides.

pam_tentOn all our group camps, your guide and camp host will lead guided tours from camp for anyone who wants to explore Tomales Bay after the sun goes down.  On dark nights we’ll explore the shoreline and be thrilled by the natural light show in the water that is bioluminescence, and on moonlit nights we’ll paddle in the glow of glorious moonlight and stars. (There is still a slight chance to see bioluminescence on these moonlit nights if the fog comes in) Both are wonderful and exciting experiences! In both cases, your night will end with you sleeping peacefully at the waters edge.

 

We will have open public guided camps on EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT from MARCH THROUGH NOVEMBER in 2018*

 

*There will camps on two consecutive nights for Memorial Day and 4th of July weekends: Saturday and Sunday.  You can arrange to stay for one or both nights.
