    Sea Cave Nature Stand Up Paddle Tour

    They say getting stuck in a cave builds character, through you know, delayed grottofication. Sorry, that was bad. Just trying to lighten the mood. Still nothing? On the Sea Cave Nature Tour, you’ll start by entering two caves that are filled with sea stars and vibrant algaes. The paddling is smooth and easy, and the naturally formed channels allow you to stay well out of the wind and surf. Once you exit and round the corner you can spot Harbor Seals, viewing them in their pure and natural state. Heading north and hugging the sandstone cliffs, the Black Oystercatchers screech and call each other to announce your arrival and their meal for the day. Narrow coves and passageways lead over the clear blue green shallow water as you make our way towards the last cave. Two dark chambers stretch eastward and let you enjoy different views of the openings. Colorful invertebrates make their home here and the dripping fresh water offers a cooling rinse. After one more cove and channel, you’ll turn around and float easily back with the current. Doesn’t that sound like a lovely day? Do you need any more convincing or have you caved into the pressure?
