See Elkhorn Slough's wildlife from its calm waters as you ride the tide with ESF staff and expert guide Ron Eby. With foggy mornings and sunny afternoons, June is a wonderful time to kayak the slough. As we travel along an incoming time we'll see otter rafts, sea lions, seals, pelicans, cormorants and more. No matter how many times you've kayaked the slough, each trip is different. We can provide the kayak, or bring your own for a discount. This event has limited space. Details to follow reservations.
