and Greater Farallones Association Present:
Hi Sanctuary Explorers:
By popular demand, we have added a 2nd Bioluminescence Kayak trip on Saturday October 22nd!
Also, we still have spaces available for our Kent Island Restoration Day in the Bolinas Lagoon on Saturday September 24th!
Please let me know if you have questions about either trip or would like to reserve a spot.
I hope to see you out in the sanctuary soon!
Sanctuary Explorations: Bioluminescence Kayak Trip
Saturday, October 22nd, 5:00pm-9:00pm
Join Greater Farallones sanctuary naturalists and Pt. Reyes Outdoors to experience the eerie phenomenon of bioluminescence in the sheltered waters of Tomales Bay. At twilight we’ll launch our kayaks and paddle to a quiet beach to enjoy a dessert picnic and warm beverages. Then, setting out again in the deepening dark, we’ll watch as tiny plankton, called dinoflagellates, create their bioluminescent magic. Ripples from our paddles and wakes, from darting fish, and even seals will ignite flashes of cool green fire against the dark waters.
WHERE: Marshall, CA (Tomales Bay)
WHEN: Saturday, October 22nd, 5:00pm-9:00pm
COST: $100/person, includes dessert.
Ages 16+; minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Space is limited. Registration Required!
