Full Moon PaddleEnjoy the sparkling magic of Mission Bay by kayak under a full moon!

This 2.5 hour tour is a great introduction to kayaking as well as a scenic tour of one of San Diego's most beautiful playgrounds! Highlights of Mission Bay include California sea lion sightings, numerous bird species, white sandy beaches, and a view of Sea World that few people get to see! Your knowledgeable guides will share the facinating natural and human history of the area. No experience is necessary to join us and you'll receive basic kayaking instruction before launching.  You don't need any special skills - your guides will show you what you need to know! Tandem kayaks are available for those unsure of their stamina. (But you have to supply your own kayaking partner!)

We'll meet at Aqua Adventures and launch our kayaks from our docks. Depending on wind, weather, and whims, we'll explore some portion of Mission Bay's 2500 acres of water. We'll pass by a bait barge covered with a variety of bird species and frequented by free-loading sea lions!

Participants must bring a flashlight! A white flashlight is a Coast Guard requirement after dark. Almost any kind will do. These are available for purchase at Aqua Adventures if you don't have your own. The price of your tour includes 2 glow sticks per kayak to increase your visibility to other boats. The glow sticks do not satisfy the Coast Guard requirement for a white light, however.

Please wear synthetic clothing like nylon, fleece, polyester, or polypropylene (jeans are not allowed) and bring a windbreaker (available to rent from Aqua Adventures for $5).
