Duos can choose the sea lion or Coronado Island tour. During the sea lion tour, paddlers explore a marine mammal training area and past a bait barge where numerous species of marine life frequent, including sea lions and pelicans. The Coronado Island tour presents picturesque vistas of the San Diego skyline, passing under the Coronado Bay Bridge on the way to Ferry Landing. Tours are led by a guide, and include a tandem kayak rental, paddling equipment, an introductory kayaking lesson.
Family Kayak Adventure Center
Lead kayaker Marie Humphrey and her team take patrons onto San Diego Bay and nearby waterways for lessons and sightseeing tours. With the skyline as the backdrop, the team leads lessons and tours that explore the region's natural attractions and run the gamut from moonlight tours to kayaking and camping trips. Locals and visitors can kayak El Capitan Reservoir and spot wild hogs and turkeys skulking through tall grasses as spotted sandpipers and willow flycatchers soar overhead. Meanwhile, whale watching sends paddlers out along the San Juan Islands where orcas and eagles challenge each other to yodeling contents, and San Diego Bay lets boaters get up-close views of sea lions and sea turtles.
Specialized tours even allow patrons to paddle under fireworks or on the bay with their dog as passenger. Additionally, kayak-based workout tours give guests a sun-soaked alternative to the gym and Humphrey's Concerts by the Bay lets families float to live music. To expand upon the adventure, Family Kayak Adventure Center also curates trips along the waters of Baja, Florida, the Northwest, and the Southwest.
