Paddle tours are back for Spring 2022!

Guided Paddle Tours

The Canoe & Kayak Wildlife Observation Program offers the public guided wildlife viewing and interpretation paddles in a normally closed area.  This free program lets paddlers experience local wildlife up-close such as river otters, egrets, herons, hawks, pelicans, beavers and pond turtles while learning about the refuge, Central Valley habitat and on-going restoration projects.  The program is open to all individuals/groups and experience levels.  All paddle tours are docent guided in a normally restricted area; there is no general access for self-guided paddling on the refuge.
