Sea Kayaking

Spend the day exploring the nature reserve before embarking on a special excursion this evening; sea kayaking at sunset. You’ll get a beginners lesson in kayaking and just before sunset set sail (under supervision) to small rock islands. This is a great spot for observing sea lions, as they’re often here lying on their backs, enjoying the last rays of sun.
