Come on a guided kayak tour with us and you might spot some of these amazing tidal zone creatures!
Pictured here a beautiful flat blue porcelain crab and a moon snail.
Sea stars in the region have been affected by wasting disease, scientists believe it is caused by raised water temperatures, or pathogenic bacteria. The Northern Sea Stars (top) have recently been thriving in our local waters along with the Leather Star (bottom). It’s encouraging to see them doing so well this season!
Pictured here are two different types of anemones, there are an estimated 1,000 different species of anemones around the world in different oceans and depths.
Here one of our kayak guides Skylar is pointing out some squid eggs attached to seaweed in the Ganges harbor, the eggs take approximately 3-8 weeks to hatch dependent on the temperature of the water.
Above are sea cucumbers, they help to cycle nutrients in their environment and play an important role in the ocean’s ecosystem.
All our tour guides are trained naturalists and would be happy to show you a glimpse of the beauty the ocean has to offer. If you’re interested in seeing some of the creatures talked about here give us a call to book a tour during low tide, as that’s the best time to spot them. Come Adventure With Us!
