Paddling under the moonlight is an enchanting experience! The water is usually calm and glassy on the Oakland Estuary in the evening, and the city lights add to the romance. We'll enjoy a leisurely pace as the sun goes down, and the moonrise sets the stage for a beautiful trip. Weather depending, we'll paddle out around Government Island, or towards the mouth of the Oakland Estuary. You stay warm and dry in our cozy sea kayaks, too. You can introduce a friend to moonlight kayaking by paddling together in one of our stable doubles.
California Kayak's enthusiastic staff will give a brief orientation to the equipment and strokes, then guide you on a tour of the area. During the trip, we'll "raft up" the kayaks and drift under the moonlight while enjoying the sounds of the city!
