For 4 years running, we have rented kayaks and explored Tomales Bay + camped on a variety of the beaches. We've seen seals, pelicans and thresher sharks! It's a beautiful bay with bioluminescence in the water at night. Totally worth a visit!!

On the last day of 2015, we did a delightful day trip to the Tomales Bay Point area. It was a sunny day. The colors of the Tomales Bay were so beautiful. It was a stunningly great way to say good-bye to 2015.

This is one of my favorite parts of California's beautiful coast. You can't go wrong here. Just remember to pack out all you bring in and pick up after yourself. Better yet, if you happen to see trash on the beach (a rare sight), please...More
