Tomales Bay - Sea Kayak Trip - Overnight

  • Hearts Desire Beach Inverness, CA (map)


The Coast Miwok people were the first to inhabit the coastal area of sheltered coves, beaches, tidal marshes, and forest of Bishop pines now known as Tomales Bay State Park, forty miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Birders can expect to see osprey, warblers, vireo, thrushes (including Swainson's Thrush which appears in tremendous abundance here), hawks, nesting woodpeckers, purple finch, loons, grebes, gulls, pelicans, etc. Previous encounters include, fox, chipmunks, gophers, deer and raccoons on the beach and along the trails leading up from the beach. Wonderful coastal plants inhabit this sheltered climate, too. Dress's shady and chilly in much of the park most of the year. Bring your binoculars!
