Menacing Leopard SharkWhale Watching Kayak Tour
Experience one of nature’s most magnificent creatures – the gray whale – as it completes the longest migration of any mammal in the world. . . .and experience it from a kayak!

The gray whale makes the incredible journey from Alaska to Baja California twice per year covering over 12,000 miles round trip. From December through March, our guests have the amazing opportunity to kayak amongst pods of whales as they swim as close to a mile within shore. Whales migrate in waves starting with the 40-50ft. males heading south and generally end with the females and playful calves making their way back north. This means we have a solid four months to see the variety of whales making the epic journey. Kayaking provides a truly intimate, up-close and eco- friendly opportunity to check out these gentle giants – an experience that you can’t get on the large whale watching boats.
