Caines head Sea kayak & hike combo

This trip provides a great opportunity to combine both hiking and sea kayaking for those looking for an active adventure. While kayaking we'll watch for sea otters, sea lions, porpoise, eagles and sea birds.  If time allows, our day will include a hike up to Fort McGilvray, an abandoned subterranean World War II military fort. This is an active day including up to 10 miles of kayaking and five miles of hiking with a 650 foot elevation gain and loss.
