Details

I know this meetup is for hikers and bikers, but we all love the outdoors and sometimes participate in other activities too. Explore the Delta up close from the water level in the company of fellow Meetup members and a trained naturalist explaining the flora and fauna around us.

Join us for a 2.5 hour long beginner kayak trip through the Delta. I have always wanted to explore the Delta via the water and this will be my first kayak trip through the Delta. I have been out on a kayak only once before and loved the experience.
