Elkhorn Slough Professional Review and Guide

"Paddling calm water in the Elkhorn Slough is an unforgettable experience for viewing marine wildlife. Marine Mammal Protection Act applies. Expect to spend lots of time enjoying the marine and avian wildlife at one of the largest salt marshes between San Francisco and Morro Bay. “Rolling hills with coastal oak and Monterey pine overlook tidal creeks and salt marshes in this outstanding Monterey Bay wetland with more than 250 bird species” (California Wildlife Viewing Guide by Falcon Publishing). Six endangered species inhabit the mudflats, marshes, and uplands surrounding the slough."
