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.
