Just an hour north of San Francisco in the Point Reyes National Seashore, wilderness kayaking experiences await you. Our Inverness and Marshall sites on Tomales Bay are adjacent to pristine beaches and protected waters where unspoiled nature and wildlife viewing abound. Naturalist-led tours, oyster tours, overnight camping, events and parties for individuals and companies, weeklong youth camps, beginning and advanced classes are just a few of our offerings. Take a break from "civilization" and explore the natural world with us by kayak. Since 1984 Blue Waters has also led trips to Baja, Mexico including Sea of Cortez island expeditions and incredible whale watching from Laguna San Ignacio base camp. Check out our website for schedule and details!

A great guided sea kayaking trip. An hour and a half drive from San Fransisco over the Golden Gate Bridge brings you to point Reyes national seashore. A huge bay with lovely beaches to stop for lunch and a knowledgeable guide to tell you about the local area. The kayaks were new and comfortable and easy to paddle and steer.... More

Blue Waters Kayaking offers night tours of Tomales Bay to view the bioluminescent dinoflagellates on moonless evenings in summer. The "fairy lights" of these tiny creatures were a true delight! Guides Eric and LoLo offered informative, calm instruction, assistance and guidance throughout the tour. No previous kayaking experience is necessary, and the guides truly do help all participants to be... More

Our group of 10 (ranging in age from 10 - 77) did a private bioluminescence kayaking tour with two guides. They did a good job keeping us together despite the dark, were very informative and interesting about the bay, the local history, and the plants & animals. We had a great time.

The guide was knowledgeable, the equipment first rate, and the weather was very cooperative. The bay where they're located is very protested, so you've got a good chance of a pleasant tour. Be prepared for a work-out, as our tour was several hours of paddling. We arranged for a private guided tour for our family. We have children ages 9,... More

A great organization. Easy reservations. Reasonable price. Good gear. Our guide unfortunately was horribly rude, took a private tour for our family of five. Guide took my daughter and husband on shore to use the restroom and when he realized I waited in the water he started screaming at me. I immediately came in and he yelled at me for... More

My husband and nephew decided to kayak for about two hours in late June in the surrounding area, and they absolutely loved it. Everything went well from start to finish, and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely give it another try.Thanks!

Myself, my friends and my daughters have had absolutely the best experiences and memories for a lifetime with Blue Waters. Several years ago, our BW kayaking guide not only helped us see oceanic/bay wildlife and plant life in the water that we otherwise would have missed, he spotted grey whales spouting far ahead in the Bay and agreed to take...

A wonderful night kayak trip on Tomales Bay in Northern California. Marshall, CA with Blue Waters Kayaking. You get to see the bioluminescence in the water after dark.

We had a ball 2/2/15. We arrived at the TInverness facility and we had just expected to change into flip flops for the inevitable push off while wading into the water. Boy, were we glad to have someone from Blue Water Kayaks outfit us correctly! I believe it was Cameron? Please forgive me if I did not remember your name... More
