This Magical Moonlight Float Trip In Northern California Will Take Your Summer To A Whole New Level
It’s one thing to explore Northern California’s stunning natural beauty by day. However, some of our state’s dreamiest landscapes take on an entirely different personality at night. There’s a moonlight kayak trip that allows participants to float around under only the light of the moon and the stars and it’s a breathtaking experience that’s bound to take your summer to a whole new level. After all, you can really appreciate this destination’s tranquil beauty like never before in the stillness of the night. Try this unique experience and prepare to be wowed!
The 15-mile long inlet known as Tomales Bay is one of Northern California's greatest treasures. Seeing it is a must for anyone, but you haven't truly experienced its beauty until you've explored it at nighttime.
Blue Waters Kayaking allows you to do just that. They offer a myriad of kayak tours in Tomales Bay, but the Bioluminescence and Evening Tours are one of the most popular options. It's easy to see why!
Paddling along Tomales Bay during the evening is a tranquil experience that's hard to put into words. After all, it's one thing to explore this gorgeous region during daytime, and another thing entirely to witness it at nightfall.
You'll begin the moonlight kayak tour by paddling along the shoreline of the Point Reyes National Seashore. Once the sun goes down, you'll paddle under the light of the moon and the stars. If there's no moonlight, you'll instead rely on bioluminescence.
Bioluminescence is light given off by a living organism. On super dark nights, this light is seen as bluish white flickers and they come from tiny critters called dinoflagellates or even schools of fish. Seeing them in the pure darkness of night is an incredible experience!
Evening kayak tours are held on certain days of the month. You can check out the schedule
here. The meeting location is the Miller Boat Launch on the east side of Tomales Bay.
You may just realize you wish you had more time to take in the utter beauty of paddling around the bay under moonlight. In this case, consider taking advantage of their moonlight camping tours which take place every Saturday from May through November.
These kayak tours last approximately three hours and offer a unique way to experience one of Northern California's most spectacular landscapes. The Full Moon Tour costs $88 per person and the Bioluminescence Tours costs $95. For more information, visit their website
