Elkhorn Slough Tours
The Elkhorn Slough is a dramatic backdrop for wildlife year-round-- home to otters, seals, sea lions, and an infinite variety of birds. It is home to saltwater, freshwater and marshland wildlife. In the fall and spring, many migrating shore birds and waterfowl are found here. We offer sea kayaking tours and paddles for all skill levels. Let our professional guides show you this amazing ecosystem. You'll want to come back again and again.
All of our tours can be booked as a private tour for you and your friends at a time that is convenient for you. Contact us to set up your time and your tour.
Reservations are required for all tours and payment is due in full at the time of reservation. We require 48 hours notice for all cancellations. If Kayak Connection determines unsafe conditions due to weather (i.e. strong winds, high surf, etc) reservations will result in a full refund.
