The Petaluma river marshland is a hidden gem, close to the town
of Petaluma. On our tour, we will explorer narrow sloughs only
accessible at certain tide levels. We’ll wind our way through the
marsh where birdlife is abundant. Eventually we make our way to an
old duck hunters cabin where we can get out, stretch our legs and
have a bite to eat. We’ll then retrace our paddle strokes back
through the marsh, to the river and back to our starting point. We
provide single or tandem touring style kayaks for our tours. They
are appropriate for beginning paddlers. You also have the option of
bringing your own kayak along, but there are some restrictions on
the style and type. Please check with us prior to booking.
Appropriate clothing required. Bring a lunch and water.
