Open Coast Tours

Kayak Connection offers some of the best intermediate to advanced tours on the Central California coast at Point Lobos, Davenport, and other open ocean adventures in the Monterey Bay. Please call to book a trip, dates can be flexible.

Point Lobos

Come paddle the most beautiful place on the West Coast!  Point Lobos is a popular destination on the Northern Big Sur coast with incredible views of large granite rock formations, abundant wildlife, Monterey Cypress forests, and much more.  This is an advanced beginner/intermediate trip.

Point Lobos Full Day Sea Kayak Trip

Come paddle with Kayak Connection to the rugged north end of Big Sur, Point Lobos!  This full day trip is for intermediate/advanced paddlers and provides the best way to explore the whole Point Lobos coastline including granite spires, sea caves, and hidden beaches.  

Davenport to Santa Cruz

Paddle the beautiful exposed north coast with an experienced guide on this amazing day paddle from Davenport landing to the Santa Cruz Harbor.  Along this stretch of coastline we will be looking for sea caves, large rock formations, sea otters, seals, and possibly whales.  As this is an exposed area of open ocean and possible large swells, this is an intermediate trip and requires previous sea kayaking instruction through Coastal Sea Kayaking 4 or the equivalent.  

Cement Ship/Seacliff Beach

This tour takes us from the Santa Cruz Harbor to the Cement Ship at New Brighton State Beach.  This is a good tour for paddlers who are looking for longer distance and lots of amazing scenery, but with less open ocean conditions.  Previous ocean kayaking experience is necessary, and this trip requires the participants to be in good physical condition.
