What you'll do

Minimum 20 photos + 1 video by (@paddle_la) will be included. Beginners welcome! You'll choose a kayak or double kayak for this adventure. We'll kick off with an instructional and safety briefing. We'll then head out and paddle on the calm marina water in search of sea lions. I'll take plenty of pictures of you during our time together so that you can share your experience with friends back home. You will receive these usually within 3-4 hours after your kayaking adventure. You'll leave feeling rejuvenated from the fresh air, California sun, proximity to marine life, and the gorgeous marine views. There is the option of using a stand-up paddle board for this sea lion marina tour for those with previous paddleboarding experience. I also teach standup paddleboarding for beginners as an Airbnb Experience here: Airbnb.com/paddlecali Instagram page: @paddle_la Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PaddleLA.

I teach kayaking and standup paddleboarding and, in my spare time, I volunteer for the California Wildlife Centre -- Marine Mammal division. I never leave home without my GoPro and love to capture pictures of the marina wildlife including sea lions and the occasional dolphin and sea turtle. My friends tell me that I spend more time on the water than dry land - and I agree! :) To see pictures and video from both my kayaking sea lion tour and paddleboarding lessons visit @paddle_la on Instagram or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/paddlela

Where you'll be

The paddling adventure begins with everyone meeting by the equipment storage truck to lock up our belongings and use restrooms. We then begin with the safety instructional on golden sand of Mother's Beach in Marina Del Rey. This is a bay with no waves when entering the water. We will then paddle into the main harbour and towards the sea lions favourite hangout spots to get our pictures.
