Items you might want to
bring:

Depending upon the season,
there may be a few personal
items you would like to take
along.  We recommend:

  Sunglasses – even if
it's not clear and sunny,
UV sunglasses can help
with glare on water or fog
and keep your eyes
rested and ready for the
magic moments when the
wildlife appears. Excellent
for looking into rivers and
tide pools as well.
  Sun protection and a
hat – some of the worst
sunburns happen to folks
in the winter in California
and it can catch up with
you any time of year.
  Jacket or sweater –
Along the coast, even in
the middle of the summer
it’s always a good idea to
keep something warm to
slip on. While Samuel
Clemens has been
famously misquoted, “the
coldest winter I ever spent
was a summer in San
Francisco”, seems not far
from the truth when the
marine layer has its’ way.
  Comfortable walking
shoes or hiking boots.

    Morning trips typically begin between 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM and

    schedule and choice of location. We will recommend itineraries based
    on current weather, tides and recent sightings of wildlife. Often, we can

    birds and mammals for you to use and keep, we’ll provide binoculars,
    spotting scopes and a library of field guides for the group to share
    during the trip. High quality optics can make a profound difference in the
    level of enjoyment when watching and capturing wildlife images.
    Because we want you to have the best experience possible when on a
