Come paddle through the ride channels and to remote beaches to discover the myriad and diverse marine animals and bird life, which inhabit Tomales Bay and its shores. This remarkable nature kayaking tour will be led by accomplished naturalist and Tule elk expert Frank Binney. It is common to see Harbor seals, Bat rays, Leopard sharks, Osprey, River otter and California sea lions. We’ll take a break on a remote beach where we will view the Point Reyes Tule elk herd during the tail end of mating season. Typical mating behaviors include males gathering the females into harems and protecting the harems by chasing off other males. We might also see “satellite” elk bulls sparring to establish hierarchy. Join the adventure with Frank and see these magnificent animals in their full glory! Kayak rental included.
