Full description
Meet your guides before sunset for a comprehensive kayaking lesson and to receive your paddle jackets and life vests. Watch a basic paddling demonstration and safety talk before setting out on the water. Head out to sea in a single or double kayak where you can watch the colors change and stars appear. This is a great introductory lesson to kayaking or a nice relaxing kayak for more experienced paddlers. Once on the water, paddle for approximately 1-2 miles along the coast surrounded by beautiful beaches and marine life. Pass the harbor past boats, through the historic wharf, under the pier, out to buoys, and along the beach. Learn about the natural history, marine ecology, astronomy, and current hot spots throughout the tour. For groups, guides can facilitate initiatives, games, and more in-depth paddle challenges for a fun and engaging way to bring your group together.
