Tour Alameda Point Development by Kayak

 

Stacked Adventures, an outdoor guide, gear and concierge service in Alameda, is conducting a special kayak tour of Seaplane Lagoon where a guide will inform the public about upcoming Alameda Point development projects on Saturday, Aug. 27.

The kayakers will travel past the Navy’s Reserve fleet MARAD and the USS Hornet, then paddle out to the breakwater enjoying the sea breeze, marine life, and scenic views of the bay area. 

Tour groups will meet at the Monarch Street entrance to the taxiway at 1951 Monarch St. The tour will be split into two sessions. Session one is from 9 to 11 a.m., while session two is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. 

The cost to join a tour is $40 per person or $70 per couple. 

Space is limited, and participants must be 18 years or older. Payment may be made via check, cash or PayPal registration through Eventbrite at www.eventbrite.com/e/sea-plane-lagoon-tours-tickets-27050110609.

A minimum group size of eight people per session is needed to run each program, with a maximum of 20 per round. If enrollment is below minimum two days before the event, session will be cancelled and refunds will be issued.

After a tour, paddlers might consider stopping by one of the attractions at Alameda Point or take a walk along the Bay Trail along the southern shoreline stopping at the USS Hornet National Museum. A lot more about the Point can be learned through a visit to the Alameda Naval Air Museum which covers the site’s history as a Navy base. The Naval Air Museum faces Seaplane Lagoon.
