Because of the rain now forecast for both days this weekend, we decided to postpone the 1/2 day kayak trip to Saturday June 7. We have 7 people already paid and I'm upping the total RSVPs allowed to 16 to encourage more people to come out.

Meetup Description: Half-day kayaking on Northern part of Tomales Bay - $79
The area around Hog Island is rich in wildlife and scenic beauty. Over 400 Tule Elk inhabit the northern part of the peninsula, and can be seen from the kayaks. We will launch at Miller Park Boat Ramp (next to the restaurant at Nick's Cove) and paddle through the tide channels to the remote beaches of the Peninsula. As we paddle along we will discover the diverse animals which inhabit the Bay and its shores. In addition to the Tule Elk, it is common to see harbor seals, bat-rays, leopard sharks, osprey, occasionally Sea Lions, and recently, some juvenile Gray Whales feeding in the area!
Since the Blue Waters Kayak company needs to transport kayaks to the start of the tour, you cannot show up without a reservation and prepayment by credit card, so if you want to go, you'll need to pay by Fri. June 6 at 10 AM. In order to reserve your kayak, call[masked] and ask for the North Bay/Tule Elk tour on June 7 booked under the name of Robert Simoni. The exact amount is $79.20. Once you have reserved your spot, please update your Meetup RSVP with the word PAID, so I'll know how many have confirmed. We will mostly be using double kayaks since these can move faster, and it enables a less experienced kayaker to team up with an experienced one. Once I get the exact headcount, I'll send out another email with more info including directions and carpool info.
Please arrive at the boat launch no later than 9:45 AM as we need to prepare for the guided kayak tour which leaves at 10 AM. Bring a picnic lunch to eat on a secluded beach. We'll return to the launch area at 2 PM.
The Files section of this meetup group home page has a PDF with more information including exact directions and a waiver that needs to be signed by all participants.
