We'll slide the kayaks into the ocean and off we'll be to explore! Call us at 805-628-2444 for other options! Most paddles include gliding along the beautiful boats docked in our harbor. From there we'll experience Sandspit, a favorite little beach perfect for catching a tender wave, taking a break, and snapping some photos. Our favorite part is showing you the adorable family of sea lions that sun bathe on a buoy out in the middle of the channel! After saying goodbye to the sea lions we'll navigate along Stearn's Warf taking in the gorgeous riviera landscape all while letting the tide push you gently back to the coast making the return paddle a breeze. Hope to paddle with you soon! Other things to note: EACH PARTICIPANT MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM TO JOIN THIS TOUR.
