What you'll do
You'll choose a kayak, double kayak or a standup paddle-board for this adventure, and we'll kick off with an instructional and safety briefing in the sand. Then we'll head out and paddle on the calm and flat marina water in search of sea lions. I'll take plenty of pictures of you during our time together so that you can share your experience with friends back home. You'll leave feeling rejuvenated from the fresh air, California sun, proximity to marine life, and the gorgeous marine views.
