Get out on the water and make some new friends with the Monterey County Young Professional Group! Our County is home to many beautiful parks and preserves, including one of the largest estuaries on the west coast of North America, Elkhorn Slough.
Whether you are a kayaking expert or this is your first time, this event offers you a safe and social experience of exploring the area in a larger group setting. The paddle will be followed by a celebratory happy hour at a The Whole Enchilada where you can continue the conversation.
Participants will share double kayaks, with an open deck (sit-on-tops). These are stable, easy to get in and out of, and are self bailing. Beginners are more than welcome! All participants will sign a release waiver at the kayak company.
Your participant fees will also cover snacks and/or starter appetizers at the Whole Enchillada.
