Highlight of our trip. We’ve been to California many times. We usually make our own adventure. This is the first time we’ve done any kind of tour in Cali and I’m so glad we did. Walker, the tour leader, was incredible. He was knowledgeable, personable, easy going and full of interesting facts and tidbits. We got to see a pile of sea lions and Walker went at our speed, letting us have input about how long we watched them. Walker also shared recommendations in the area that were spot on (Salt & Straw). We went out at 1pm, the wind was starting to pick up so certain sections you paddled into the wind BUT it wasn’t too challenging (definitely a good workout for your arms). I’d say my daughter and I have some kayak experience. My husband is very experienced and opted to paddle board. We all agreed it was the most memorable part of our trip. Could not recommend enough. Thank you so much, Walker!!!

Our guide Walker was just great with lots of info about the sea lions and the boats. We didn't realize we were going to be paddling inside a marina which made for easy paddling. But just different than we thought the photo depicted. Looking now it does look like a dock.

Excellent tour through the marina. We got to see a handful of sea lions and enjoy a nice day on the water. Walker was an exceptional tour guide that helped us understand the equipment and feel safe the entire time. I brought my 60 year old parents and they were able to easily navigate the waters on a tandem kayak
