Looking for some awesome to fill your weekend? We've got just the thing! Bioluminescence kayaking is just as cool as it sounds and it's a truly unique experience only available in the Bay Area in Tomales Bay. Add to that a delicious oyster BBQ at Hog Island Oyster Co, and a drive/hike through the Point Reyes National Seashore, and this will be a trip that will have your eyes and mouths wide with wonder.

Tomales Bay is a stretch of the Northern California coastline that is known for its beautiful ocean views, calm waters, and delicious oysters. Because the entire area is inside a natural bay, it's an ideal location for swimming, kayaking, and a variety of water sports. Lucky for us it's also the perfect environment for bioluminescence kayaking. 

What is Bioluminescence Kayaking? This is an evening light show on the water - a magical display of the work of bioluminescent dinoflagellates - an amazing plankton species that produces bursts of light when awakened by the paddles. Fish swimming, paddles breaking the surface, and kayaks cutting through the water will generate a magical display. (Video Link)

In addition to the bioluminescence kayaking with Outback Adventures, we will also have a BBQ feast at Hog Island Oyster Company at their Marshall Oyster Farm location. We will dine on the freshest and highest quality oysters specially cultivated by this famed local establishment. You can try your hand at shucking oysters, or just sit back and enjoy the views. Best of all, it's BYOB so it's affordable! No wonder this is one of the hardest reservations to score in the Bay Area. 

But wait there's more! Tomales Bay is also known for the Point Reyes National Seashore, an area of incredible beauty and history. We will go on a drive/hike of the area and explore many of its hidden beaches, vista points, and historical locations. Below is the image of the popular Point Reyes Lighthouse.

When we're not out and about, we can relax in our beautiful sea side home. This house has plenty of space, a big kitchen, and all the amenities needed for that home away from home feel.

Best part of all, there is a hot tub in the backyard! Relaxing in that hot tub after a long day of adventuring with some wine will be the perfect end to an amazing day.

I can't imagine a better way to spend a weekend out of the city. You will come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Don't miss out on this amazing experience!
