Bioluminescence Kayaking Tour
You asked for it - so we organized kayaking with the bioluminescent "dinoflagellates"
NO it's not some kind of high level, ancient language!
It's the name of the creatures that light up the water.
Bioluminescence on Tomales Bay, a magical phenomenon produced by tiny, single-celled organisms that emit flashes of light when agitated or disturbed. In high concentrations, with many glimmering at once, they may seem to sparkle in the water or light up the drops that fall from a paddle or swirl in your hand.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED.
*Note: This is one of the most VIRAL events and we only have a VERY LIMITED number of spots
so make sure to sign up SOON! *
What to expect:
We'll start our adventure with a quick orientation and water safety discussion. A professional will explain and demonstrate basic paddling techniques and security measures - there is no need to be nervous. No previous kayaking experience is necessary. On the water, there is a great chance of seeing some of the plentiful wildlife that lives in Point Reyes as the sun is setting.
We will meet up for a picnic dinner before the event to get to know each other
Hope you guys get hungry after driving.. We are meeting up for picnic in Tomales Bay where we can enjoy some time together before the kayaking experience !

Attire: Wear warm layers and clothing that you don't mind getting a little wet.
Recommended: A synthetic shirt paired with a fleece jacket or vest is best. Fleece and synthetics wick the moisture away from your body and keep you warm even when wet. Wool is also a great warmth layer.
NO COTTON! Also remember to bring a change of clothes for dinner. You may also want to have a towel in your car just in case you get a bit wet or dirty.
