What You Need to Know

  • This tour is recommended for ages 10 and up, and is a great option for beginner-birders (prior biking experience is required).
  • As bike rentals must be sized in advance, we will reach out to confirm approximate heights of all group members (if you have any physical limitations, please let us know in advance).
  • All participants must submit a signed liability waiver and photo release form, and participants under the age of 18 must have the waiver and form signed by a parent or guardian.
  • All participants must wear helmets (provided) and stay with the group (pace is based on the slowest cyclists in the group).
  • In response to COVID-19, all equipment is sanitized between tours and Ocean Connectors staff have been fully vaccinated. Guests are not permitted to attend an Eco Tour if they are exhibiting any symptoms that may be associated with COVID-19.

Knowing that seeing marine wildlife can depend many factors outside of the tour company’s control, we expected a quiet day with maybe one or two dolphin sitings. Instead, we had a rich day full of education, and saw more whales surfacing than we could count. Amazing.
