Kayak Tour of Crystal Cove with REI

August 25 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Come paddle this gorgeous stretch of pristine coastline with REI and Crystal Cove Alliance, the nonprofit partner of Crystal Cove State Park. On this scenic ocean trip you will experience sunny coves, craggy headlands, views of Catalina Island and forests of giant kelp teeming with sea life. You will have the chance to see dolphins, seals, pelicans and several other marine animals. While at sea, you’ll take part in studies to monitor kelp and water quality as you discover how Marine Protected Areas are helping to ensure the continued health of our offshore ecosystems. We will launch tandem sit-on-top kayaks from El Moro beach through small surf and then paddle at a relaxed pace and learn more about this ecosystem and what we can do to protect it. This trip is appropriate for ages 12 and up (Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a participating responsible adult). Previous Kayak experience preferred – Try a Learn to Kayak class first.
