Water-Based Activities

Many locations that you might choose to visit offer the opportunity to play in the water! In addition to swimming pools at many of our lodge-based sites, Naturalists at Large can facilitate ocean kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, and flat water canoeing.

Water-Based Activities


❯ Swimming

Naturalists at Large can provide life guards for both pool and ocean activities.

❯ Kayaking

Using one and two person sit-on-top style kayaks, participants can search for sea life while exploring hidden beaches of the California coast and Catalina Island.

❯ Snorkeling

Explore the giant kelp forests of Catalina Island and discover the diversity of flora and fauna to be found in our coastal waters.

❯ Surfing

Beginners and seasoned pros alike are invited to ride foam-topped boards on the world class waves of the central coast.

❯ Flat water canoeing

Participants will experience an expedition-style trip on the Colorado River. Spend each day floating down river in a two person canoe and learn the human history of this ancient waterway.
