Let's get out of town for the Memorial Day weekend and explore Morro Bay State Park.
We have reserved one campsite at the edge of the campground for the holiday weekend.
The park includes Morro Rock Ecological Reserve, the outstanding Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History, and the Heron Rookery Natural Preserve.
Here is an opportunity to view beautiful Coronado Island on San Diego Bay by kayak.
We'll meet at Tidelands Park for an introductory paddling lesson and safety talk. Then we'll launch our kayaks for a guided tour of the bay traveling under the beautiful Coronado-San Diego Bay Bridge.
We'll paddle to the Ferry Landing pointing out various landmarks of the downtown skyline along the way. You will learn why the Bay Bridge had to be built at least 200 feet high and how the downtown skyline looks like a tool box,
We make it easy for you to join us on this paddle. We provide all the kayaks and equipment plus an introductory paddling lesson. No previous kayaking or swimming experience is required.
We use stable, 2-person, comfortable kayaks that are easy to paddle for a safe, enjoyable day on the bay. A truly unique way to enjoy America's Finest City.
Cost is $44 per adult, $18 per child (2-14 years of age) sharing a kayak with an adult. Includes kayak, life vest, paddle, introductory lesson, and instructor/guide. $22 discount if you want to bring your own kayak.

Join us for our annual Thanksgiving adventure on the water. We spend four glorious days paddling flat water on the lower Colorado River.
This is a great opportunity to learn to be self-sufficient in a kayak. For those novice kayakers, we teach you how to pack all the gear you need for our multi-day adventure. Each kayak holds approximately 2.5 backpacks worth of gear.
For experienced kayakers, this is a fantastic opportunity to explore the desert and mountainous area of the Colorado River where it flows between Arizona and California.
We start our 40-mile journey in the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge and continue through the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge. Along the way we camp in four different remote camps, hike slot canyons, and visit historic mines and homesites.
We have a scrumptious Thanksgiving feast on Thursday evening. Family Kayak Adventure Center will provide the holiday turkey and we each bring part of the holiday meal to share.
Costs are $359 per person. Package includes kayaks and paddling gear, camping/parking/shuttle fees and instructor/guide. Both single and double kayaks are available. Round trip ground transportation from San Diego is provided for the first 7 persons to sign up. $100 discount with your own kayak.
Participants are responsible for their own camping gear, food, and drinking water. A detailed itinerary and equipment list is provided.
