Elkhorn Slough is a fantastic location for a corporate team building event and our professional naturalists are ready to assist you! Our programs always include incredible wildlife viewing that helps to build a sense of unity among colleagues. Birding is fantastic and there are plenty of marine mammals to view.

We can do a variety of team building activities such as “walking the plank” problem solving and kayak races.

Some corporate groups choose to do an evening paddle with us. Night kayaking is magical and when conditions are favorable, we may witness the extraordinary light show produced by bioluminescent plankton. During the summer and early fall, bioluminescent algal blooms may light up the dark night water with every stoke of our paddle blade.

Leaving from Moss Landing, we’ll have a leisurely paddle through Elkhorn Slough before full darkness is upon us. Our trip will begin with a quiet observation of 20-30 sea otters that reside in Moss Landing Harbor. Beginners welcomed.

The Protected harbor of Pillar Point near Halp5070389f Moon Bay is another great destination to enjoy a team building event.

Hope you can join us!

Our school field trips to the protective water of Pillar Point harbor sometimes have some real surprises. During the fall of 2016, Humpback whales were consistently seen lunge feeding near shore where students could observe safety from the jetties. An amazing teaching opportunity!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Launching from Pillar Point Harbor, we’ll have a leisurely paddle through the protected and scenic harbor. Cormorants, pelicans, terns and harbor seals join us for our naturalist-led field trip. Across the harbor we can beachcomb, explore tidepools and have a shore lunch before paddling back.

A very popular activity with students is pulling a large seine net to examine our catch and continue our discussion of animal adaptations. Teachers, please feel free to call us to discuss curriculum ideas in greater detail.

The cost of your field trip is $48 per person with a complimentary trip for one teacher chaperone. $50 per person weekends.

Hope you can join us!

Dear Teachers

Blue Water Ventures is committed to providing truly unique outdoor educational programs for your students!

Launching from Pillar Point Harbor, we’ll have a leisurely paddle through the protected and scenic harbor. Cormorants, pelicans, terns and harbor seals join us for our evening paddle. Fall is a beautiful month to be on the water especially when experienced from a kayak. Across the harbor we can beachcomb, explore tidepools and have a shore lunch before paddling back. A very popular activity with students is pulling a large seine net to examine our catch and continue our discussion of animal adaptations.

The cost of your field trip is only $44 per person with a complimentary trip for one teacher chaperone. 10:00am-3:00pm<a

Tandem style closed deck sea kayaks are used which are very stable and easy to paddle. This trip is appropriate for beginners and/or people intrigued by the natural history of our coast.

Very Sincerely,
