Book your Mono Lake canoe tour todayMarch 28th, 2016 by Andrew, Digital Engagement Coordinator
Join the Mono Lake Committee for a guided canoe tour this summer!
Canoeing on Mono Lake is an unforgettable experience. See the lake in a completely new way as you float over bubbling springs forming new tufa towers, examine some of the trillions of tiny brine shrimp that inhabit the lake, and experience the peace and tranquility of this wild place. Prepare to take in breathtaking views of the Mono Basin and the dramatic Sierra crest, which rises 6,000 feet above. If your tour is on a very calm morning, you will be rewarded with brilliant reflections of tufa towers and High Sierra peaks on the lake. You are also likely to see many of the birds that call Mono Lake home from Osprey to swallows.
On your one-hour tour, your experienced guide will talk about the fascinating natural and political history of the lake and allow plenty of time for all of your questions about this unique high desert lake.
Canoe tours begin the last weekend in June and continue through Labor Day weekend. They occur each Saturday and Sunday at 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am. Prices start at just $25 per person. We welcome all children four years old and up. We provide canoes, paddles, and life jackets.
During our opening weekend—June 25 and 26—we welcome all residents of Mono and Inyo counties to participate in a free canoe tour! Reservations are required, local or non-local. To make a reservation or for more information, please call the Mono Lake Committee at (760) 647-6595. You may also make your reservation online. We look forward to seeing you at Mono Lake this summer!
