Spend two days kayaking on the calm, beautiful waters of the Elkhorn Slough estuary, where you will learn techniques and safety to prepare you for paddling in a bay or protected ocean environment. Then, after a day spent at the famed Monterey Bay Aquarium, go for a final triumphant paddle on Monterey Bay to spot the marine life you learned about at the aquarium!
