Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with this Groupon.
$39 for a Four-Hour Kayak Tour ($85 Value)
The Morning at White Gulch kayak tour launches from Nick's Cove and leads paddlers across Tomales Bay and into White Gulch, a serene cove that derives its name from the white-sandstone cliffs that surround the water. As they paddle, tour-goers may catch glimpses of bat rays and leopard sharks passing beneath the surf as well as tule elk, waterfowl, and harbor seals patrolling the shores. Before making the journey back across the bay, kayakers will set up a picnic at the beach and enjoy a light snack of fresh bread, organic fruit, and local cheeses.
Point Reyes Outdoors
Point Reyes Outdoors leads hiking, biking, and kayaking expeditions through the unsown hills of the Point Reyes National Seashore and the tranquil waters of the California coast. During kayak tours, explorers jaunt through the tidal waterways of Drakes Estero and sunset forays into Tomales Bay. Guided nature hikes explore the local bounty of flora and fauna such as marine mammals, wildflowers, or migratory lawn gnomes.
Nature specialists, such as biologists, nurses, and certified kayak instructors, lead all tours and provide insight into the landscape and its inhabitants. Point Reyes Outdoors also rents out mountain bikes, which guests can use to pedal through a circuit of nearby trails that climb Fir Top mountain or stretch out to Wildcat Beach.
