Mono Lake Committee Canoe Tours

Discover bubbling springs, alkali flies, brine shrimp, underwater tufa towers, migrating birds, and crystalline waters, all from the unique vantage point of a canoe.

Our regular canoe tours ended for the year on Labor Day weekend. If you are interested in scheduling a special tour or if you have questions about the canoe tours, please contact Canoe Coordinator Julia Frankenbach at (760) 647-6595.

Guided canoe tours provide a unique look into the ecology and geology of this high desert lake. No canoe experience is necessary and we provide all the equipment. Our experienced canoe guides will share with you some of Mono Lake's unusual natural history as well as the story about efforts to protect this three-million-year-old lake.
