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!!”

Drakes Estero Kayak Tour
Sep 19 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

Drakes Estero Kayak Tour

Drakes Estero Kayak Tour is one of the north bay’s gems and this is one of our best kayak tours in the Point Reyes National Seashore! Once it opens July 1st, you can explore several arms which are the homes to hundreds of bat rays and leopard sharks that will swim lazily under your kayak in crystal clear waters! There is an abundance of resident bird life: brown pelicans, white pelicans, marbled godwits, willits, long-billed curlews, whimbrels, osprey, great horned owls, and many, many more.

Launching from the beach at the Drakes Bay Oyster Company, we’ll paddle our kayaks out of Schooner Bay, crossing over to Home Bay and up along the shores passing jellies, harbor seals, bat rays and ochre stars until we reach the estero’s beach at the mouth about 4 miles away. Here you can easily walk around to the ocean side and explore the cliffs. Bring a lunch and come join us for a splendid day of paddling in one of the most majestic places in Marin County!

Appropriate clothing required.

Local kayak guide and instructor Scott Terriberry will lead us safely across the bay on one of the most beautiful kayak tours on the west coast.
