FAQs Wildin’ Mission Bay Eco Tours
How is this kayaking tour different than Wildlife Kayaking?
Mission Bay Kayaking is shorter and less demanding than our other option. This tour is more centrally located and offers different plant and animal habitats as it is not located in wetlands or the wildlife refuge.
You do not need any prior birding experience to join this trip! Our naturalist guide will help you identify birds and share interesting facts as well as teach you about local ecology and conservations efforts. The San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a hotspot for birdlife and as a result there is something for everyone. In other words, you do not need to be an expert birder to enjoy this tour!
What fitness level is required?
Since this is a wildlife viewing tour we will paddle slowly to be able to enjoy nature and wildlife. There is no minimum required fitness level to participate in this tour. If you have any physical limitations, please let us know in advance.
