Spend a day at Elkhorn Slough learning about and viewing wetland wildlife at close range aboard a comfortable, easily boardable boat, floating on calm inland slough water. This day trip will offer a unique autumn spectrum of wildlife, including shore bird species. Join experienced naturalists as we see sea lions, harbor seals, and sea otters. There will be a significant variety of aquatic birds, and close-in views of a thriving heron and cormorant rookery shore side. We rarely record fewer than 50 bird species on our trips, including many northbound migrants, during the three-hour outing.
This trip offers a view of the Elkhorn slough, and the wildlife that live there, that is only visible when you are moving through the slough on a boat!
