Conuma Estuary Tour

The Conuma Estuary Tour lasts 2 hours with a maximum group size of 6 guests.

Set out on a two-hour exploratory tour with our certified kayaking guide and marine naturalist. This interpretive journey to the Conuma River Estuary departs from Moutcha Bay Resort and is available to kayakers of all experience levels.

River estuaries are the nurseries of the ocean, providing breeding grounds and safe refuge for a variety of fish, birds and mammals. To migrating birds, estuaries are critical feeding grounds, providing an opportunity to rest and refuel on their journey.  Black bears and other mammals frequent the Conuma River estuary in search of berries, green vegetation and salmon.

This tour includes ocean kayak and safety equipment, paddling orientation, and a certified kayaking guide. Your tour takes place within the sheltered waters of Moutcha Bay. Your guide will ensure that you have a safe and fun on-the-water adventure.
