Our bioluminescence kayak tour was cancelled due to recent high winds and rain a few days prior that washed out the bioluminescence. Dallas was really helpful in booking a private sunset kayaking tour the next day as an alternative. Jeff was our guide and we just can't say enough about him! In addition to being all about our safety and... More

This was a really fun picnic kayaking day. Been trying to get back ever since. Sun, water, salt in the air, fresh on your face. Smooth paddling, esp on the way out. Enjoy!

We booked a morning kayak tour of Tomales Bay for a Monday morning tour and LOVED it. During the week they book as private tours....so it was our family of 4 and a guide. The personalized attention was great! We were able to go at our own pace and it was great as we have not kayaked before. Our guide... More

We were impressed by the enthusiasm of our kayaking guides. The equipment was in good condition, the kayaks were comfortable, the pre-kayaking instructions were well done. We took the bioluminescent evening kayaking trip and it was magical. Once it was completely dark, any movement in the water created what looked like pixie dust. We swirled our hands and paddles in...

Liked: the location was perfect for exploring Tomales Bay by kayak. Liked less: I didn't feel that taken care of, no launch into the water,one seat in ourkayak was horribly uncomfortable. I asked for a different paddle but wasn't given one. They were not at all helpful about where to go and what to see,. We still had a good... More

Customer service was good, Jeff/Geoff and Liz were good. They have a "you can do it" attitude and we did. Instructions, do's and don't's were given and we listened. Our group age ranged from 10 yrs old to 65 yrs old and we had a wonderful time. My arms are a little sore, but it was expected. I would recommend... More

My wife & I participated in a ~3-hour kayak tour with Ryan (great guide) for our 7th anniversary. The staff was excellent, very well informed and made the trip fantastic. If you're adventurous, this is a great activity. You can even stay overnight if you're REALLY adventurous.

We went on the bioluminesence kayak trip at night. It was very cool to see the little creatures sparkling like pixy dust in the water. It is really dark and foggy but they put a glow stick on every kayak so you can follow the group and everyone is a novice and runs into each other when you first get... More

My husband and I went to Olema over Fourth of July weekend. Despite not having made reservations, Max and John were really helpful in getting us a two person kayak--and they were SUPER busy! We are not kayakers and just rented for two hours, which was perfect. Lots of fun, and Tomales Bay is gorgeous from the water.

I was up at Tomales Bay over the 4th of July weekend, so the kayaking tour was really crowded. The guys at Blue water were super organized and professional, and got us out on the water without any hitches. We paddled out into the bay, and already it was really gorgeous. You can't really beat Tomales Bay for views. Our... More
