Do you already know how to stand up paddle? If sightseeing and wildlife spotting is more what you are interested in, take an Eco-tour. Priced the same as a lesson, these trips offer the chance to see some of the surprising wildlife sighting opportunities that exist within the Bay.
Most trips we see one or more seals – there are actually a couple of spots in the Harbor where we find up to 15 of these guys lounging around. Above the water we often see pelicans, great Blue Herons, white egrets, cormorants, coots, and mallard ducks. …Down below the surface of the water, we see stingrays, Bat rays, Nasty ‘ol giant Sea slugs, scallops, crabs and who knows what else.
…And rarely we have seen dolphins swim into the Harbor, although they generally stay outside in the Ocean. Last year, we saw a small grey whale come into the Harbor! But that only happened once, so don’t plan on that!
