SEA OTTER FOCUS TOURS

These tours are offered only in Fall and provide an in depth look at the Southern Sea Otter. We'll discuss the habits, history, and physiology of this charismatic species, as well as the conservation efforts that led to the Elkhorn Slough having the highest concentration of Southern Sea Otters in the world!

photo safaris

marine mammal baby tours

Offered only in Spring, these tours provide an excellent opportunity to view the Harbor Seal pups born in the Elkhorn Slough in April. We also tend to see a spike in Sea Otter births around this time as well. These tours are led by one of our marine mammal specialists.
