Petaluma Marsh Tour
Nov 8 @ 11:30 am – 4:30 pm

Petaluma Marsh Tour

The Petaluma river marshland is a hidden gem, close to the town of Petaluma. On our Petaluma Marsh Tour, we will explore narrow sloughs only accessible at certain tide levels. We’ll wind our way through the marsh where birdlife is abundant. After paddling for 3 hours or so, we’ll then retrace our paddle strokes back through the marsh, to the river and back to our starting point. We provide single or tandem touring style kayaks for our tours. They are
appropriate for beginning paddlers. You also have the option of bringing your own kayak along, but there are some restrictions on the style and type. Please check with us prior to booking. Appropriate clothing required. Bring a lunch and water.
