Petaluma kayaks through local marsh

March 7, 2014 by  

This month, kayak enthusiasts have the opportunity to explore a local marsh.

The Petaluma Marsh Tour features an adventure through a unique marshland and is suitable for both beginning and more experienced paddlers. During this adventure, kayakers may see an array of wetland birds and other wildlife. When the tour reaches a landmark cabin, the group can eat lunch. Then, via the same route, the tour will head back to the starting point.

The Petaluma Wildlife Marsh area boasts thousands of acres consisting of various natural wetland habitats. Known as the biggest tidal marshland in the state, this area remains relatively undisturbed.

Clavey Paddlesports is hosting the tour, and offers several different kayaking tours to explore nature’s beauty. Often, companies like Clavey will use printing services to advertise the kayaking tours, along with other classes and rental information. Flyers are an easy and inexpensive way to promote a business.

The event costs $90 and includes the use of a kayak, and guests can choose from a single or tandem kayaks, or may bring their own kayak provided it meets the organizers’ guidelines. Participants should also bring food and water.

The tour will take place on March 29 from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. The marsh is located at Gilardis Marina on Lakeview Highway in Petaluma. To make a reservation, call 707-766-8070.
