The San Diego Section of APA Plan to Kayak: San Diego Bay Eco Tour with Ocean Connectors event is an opportunity for planners to explore beautiful San Diego Bay, learn about sea turtles and their habitats, and learn about the planning related issues in the South Bay. The tour will be led by certified guides who are experts in marine science and conservation.

The Eco Tours program through the nonprofit Ocean Connectors is an opportunity to explore the incredible natural wonders found in San Diego’s “backyard”. Eco Tours will serve as an opportunity to answer questions about San Diego native wildlife and habitats while providing a day of outdoor education, fun and recreation around San Diego Bay.

The Eco Tour includes all equipment, admission, and supplies, and will be led by experts in local history and marine conservation (see bio section). Groups receive behind-the-scenes access and personalized experiences that can’t be found anywhere else. Best of all, a portion of all Eco Tours supports the Ocean Connectors mission to educate, inspire, and connect underserved youth with the coast. This means that all Eco Tour attendees are making the same wonderful experiences possible for local schoolchildren.

The Turtles Eco Tour includes a guided kayaking tour of San Diego Bay departing from the Chula Vista Marina. Kayakers use waterproof binoculars and field guides to observe wildlife as they paddle through the Chula Vista Wildlife Reserve with expert tour guides leading the way. Be sure to be on the lookout for the green sea turtles that live in the South Bay!
