Join us for an experience unlike anything else you will do in Point Reyes.

Tomales Bay is one of the rare locations where bioluminescent dinoflagellates are visible. These amazing plankton produce bursts of light when disturbed, putting on an incredible light show. We schedule our trips on moonless nights and take you to the darkest areas of the bay for the brightest viewing. Fish swimming, paddle strokes, and the kayaks themselves generate a magical display.

We begin the tour in daylight. Your guides will show you how to operate your kayak and teach you a few paddling techniques; no prior experience is necessary. On the water, there is a great chance of seeing some of the plentiful wildlife that lives in the area as the sun is setting. The incredible view of the stars and the bioluminescence will amaze you for the remainder of the tour.

3 Hour Tours (select weeknights, Saturdays, and Sundays; year round):  $98 per person (once the tour launches we do not stop/get out of the boats until we return to the launch site at the end of the tour)

4 Hour Tours (select Saturdays & Sundays; May-September):  $115 per person (includes a stop on a beach for hot drinks and dessert treats)
