Experience the mind-blowing beauty of the Southern California coastline from ocean to harbor to bay. Our guided tours are the perfect group activity to keep everyone together in an inclusive, exhilarating activity that promotes teamwork, fitness, and the wonder of nature.
These tours are for everyone who can swim and have a love of the ocean. No experience necessary.
Ocean Kayak Tour + Sea Lion Viewing
Take a guided kayak tour along one of the most dramatic coastlines in the world, filled with hidden beaches, contoured cliffs, clear ocean, abundant sea life (home to sea lions, dolphins and whales), and Technicolor excitement.
We launch out of Fisherman’s Cove, one of the calmest, wave-protected coves in Laguna Beach, then paddle the North Laguna coastline, teeming with marine life in its crystal clear waters. You’ll see hidden reefs where bright orange garibaldi fish swim just beneath you, and giant starfish attach to the rocks. We’ll explore the expanding and magnificent kelp forest, growing up to a foot a day. You’ll enjoy views of Main Beach and the hidden coves and beaches of North Laguna. And we’ll get up close and personal with a colony of sea lions at Seal Rock, a nature sanctuary. Our instructors are all experienced watermen and women who will share their love of the ocean with your group.
Newport Back Bay Eco Tour
Paddle the flat and natural estuary of Newport Back Bay, the largest of a few remaining natural estuaries in Southern California. An estuary is a coastal wetland where salt water from the ocean mixes with nutrient-rich fresh water from inland sources, to provide a fertile feeding area for birds, fish and other animals.
Upper Newport Bay is an important rest stop and/or winter home for birds migrating from Canada and Alaska, and up to 30,000 birds can be seen here on any one day during the winter months. The Bay is also a spawning ground and nursery for many commercial and sports fish, including halibut and bass.
Newport Harbor Glam Tour
Newport Harbor is the largest recreation marina on the West Coast. And the most fabulous. See some of the worlds most exclusive real estate up close and personal, home to movie stars and billionaires. Paddle the famous man-made islands, though channels and inlets, see amazing luxury yachts, the world famous Fun Zone and the world’s shortest car ferry. Extend the tour with an optional landing on Balboa Island and walk the quaint village to enjoy a world famous Balboa (ice cream) bar.
OUTRIGGER TEAM CaNOEING
Outrigger canoeing is one of the few recreational activities that everyone does together as a team. Paddlers feel more secure than they do in kayaks or SUP's because they sit inside a stable craft. It's really fun as there are 8 seats to a hull, and as many as three hulls. So a single canoe is powered by 24 teammates. And that means you cut through the water and move fast, so you'll see a lot: Newport Back Bay estuary,as well as the islands of Newport Harbor. There's always a steersman on board, and it is a great team activity that's not too strenuous because everyone pitches in.
