Bioluminescence Kayak Tour – Tomales Bay

Kayak Tomales Bay and experience the tranquility of a night paddle and magic of the bioluminescence emitted by the blooming dinoflagellates, a microscopic one cell organism. These harmless little creatures can sometimes bloom in such concentrations, more than a million cells per milliliter, that the bay looks like sparkling blue aurora borealis!  We’ll start just prior to dusk, so you can get your bearings while the sun sinks behind the Inverness Ridge.  At dusk we often hear the chatter of herons and see seals, osprey, pelicans, jellyfish, bat rays and kingfishers. The Bioluminescence Kayak Tour is our most popular outing and fills up fast so book now for best availability.

Review: “Wow!! I’ve done a lot of things at night, but paddling on the water to an island full of birds and other creatures was a first. The sounds of Jurassic Park and the uber cool visions of my paddle exciting the living organisms beneath was exhillerating. A whole new kind of high. I highly recommend Clavey Paddlesports! Low key guys who know their stuff. I felt completely safe and well cared for. GO DO IT!!”
