Let's get together to kayak the Elkhorn Slough in Moss Landing! The wildlife there is amazing. Watching otters, sea lions, seals, pelicans, cormorants, egrets and a host of other wildlife from the water should provide a unique perspective of how the slough is used by the native inhabitants. And it sounds like a fantastic fun time! No experience needed but you must be a good swimmer.
Bring some vegan snacks to share if you like!
August 1st 12:30PM
Meet in front of Monterey Bay Kayaks 2390 Highway One (carpooling is encouraged). We'll plan on Kayaking down the slough in time to be picked up by a van at 4:30PM. There are only 6 more spaces left in the van so RSVP with them soon!
Rental is $30.00 per person for all-day use of single, double or triple kayaks. The van ride back is an additional $15. If you wanted to you could kayak back instead of getting the ride. There are only 6 more available spots in the van so RSVP soon.
I recommend bringing fingerless gloves because I got blisters on my hands last time.
Rental rates include the following:
* Gear Provided: wetsuit (wear a bathing suit), life jacket, paddling jacket, paddle and of course the kayak.
* 15 - 20 minute on-land orientation: basic info, local weather forecasts, wildlife viewing guidelines and an overview of the paddling area map.
All renters must be good swimmers
Parking fees for vehicles are $3.00/4 hours. These fees are collected by the Moss Landing Harbor District for all vehicles parked in the North Harbor parking lot.
