2017 Estuary Wildlife Tour with a Naturalist
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: WILDLIFE
Big River estuary lies nestled in the Mendocino Headlands State Park. Tidal for up to 8 miles, beautiful Big River is home to River Otters, Harbor Seals, Great Blue Herons, Double Crested Cormorants, and a wide variety of bird life. This informative tour takes place on stable, human powered outrigger canoes which are excellent platforms for binoculars. You will travel upriver about 2 miles. Please note that paddling is required, especially on the return.
Custom tour dates available during fall, winter and spring only—specifically from September 5th, 2017 through June 19th, 2017. During the summer you can book the Solar Eco Tour and usually find Sara at the helm. Sara's Wildlife Tour is reservable for parties of 2-8. We encourage you to book a tour date ahead of time, although it is possible to reserve a tour with a minimum of 48 hours notice, depending on Sara's schedule.
Stable outrigger canoes of different sizes can be used, depending on the size of your group. The departure time will depend on the tidal conditions and wind velocity, and will be set accordingly.
Wildlife Tours are $65 per person for parties of 4-8. For parties of 2-3, $85 per person. Your credit card will be charged after completion of the tour.
