Explore the waters of the Sonoma Coast together as you and your guest enjoy a Tandem Kayak Tour in Bodega Bay. Picturesque views of the Northern California coast, encounters with indigenous marine life and bird spotting are part of this outdoor adventure!

The fun of this experience gift begins when you meet your Outfitter at the Surf Shack. Here you will be set up with all of the equipment needed for the excursion. Next, you will take part in a 20 minute on shore instructional clinic which covers the safety techniques of kayaking. You will also receive route suggestions from your Instructor based upon the waters you most wish to paddle. Once you are familiar with the kayak and are ready to begin, you and your guest will head out for the self-guided tour of your choice either on the Bay, through the Russian River or in Salmon Creek.

Bodega Bay Kayaking

 Our experience kayaking was very good.

Kayaking at Bodega Bay 

4 stars

 Our excursion was a gift. Even though it was overcast, we had a wonderful time exploring Bodega Bay actually the best lighting. Seals were everywhere breaching and poking their heads up and watching us. Staff was thorough in paddling and safety instructions. 2 hrs was sufficient though for the area, 4 hrs would be too long to kayak in the bay.

 It was a really fun experience. The staff got us set up in the two kayaks with instructions on how to use them and made good suggestions of where to go to see wildlife and to avoid being in the windiest areas. We had a great time!

Kayaking Review 

5 stars

 I recently went on the Bodega Bay Kayaking, which I had purchased for my boyfriend's birthday. It was a great trip and we loved it!! The staff at the surf shop was super friendly (be sure to say hi to surfer bob/rob, he's the coolest). We didn't see as much wildlife because of the time of year, but we saw a salamander or two and some fish and the weather was perfect!! Definitely a fun day trip and something I would love to do again. Thank you!!

Bodega Bay Kayaking Trip 

3 stars

 Once you book, you can't cancel. The weather on the ocean is often foggy, cold, rainy and/or windy, so you're taking a pretty big risk. We got a nice enough day, but it was windy so we weren't offered the ocean option. Salmon Creek was pleasant but ... boring. We had to work to stretch it out to a 3-hour experience. Our 'guide' was very pleasant, but there wasn't much 'orientation' to be done. 'Here's the paddles, here's the life vests.' We were instructed to just leave the kayak on the shore and bring the vests and paddles back to the surf shop.

Nice! 

5 stars

 Our originally scheduled day had rain in the morning and it was no problem to postpone the kayaking to the next day. That day was just gorgeous with sunshine and almost no wind. We saw a lot of wildlife (seals, bat ray, golden eagle, egrets, and cormorants) and really had a good time.

 The service was great, we got to choose between a double or singles. We also had pretty good weather. The amount of time was generous. I wish we could have had better fitting boats - it took more effort to paddle around a very big single.
