Bioluminescence Kayak Trip

Join Greater Farallones sanctuary naturalists and Pt. Reyes Outdoors to experience the eerie phenomenon of bioluminescence in the sheltered waters of Tomales Bay. At twilight we’ll launch our kayaks and paddle to a quiet beach to enjoy a dessert picnic and warm beverages. Then, setting out again in the deepening dark, we’ll watch as tiny plankton, called dinoflagellates, create their bioluminescent magic. Ripples from our paddles and wakes, from darting fish, and even seals will ignite flashes of cool green fire against the dark waters.
