Tour Description and Details

This new eco-adventure through Point Reyes National Seashore and Muir Woods National Monument unveils Marin County and the San Francisco Bay Area's hidden natural wonders. Set off on an eight-hour full-day expedition in a luxury 4X4 SUV, exploring Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Olema, Bear Valley visitor center, and Point Reyes’ captivating beaches, parks, and historic lighthouse.

Your guide will whisk you away from your hotel at 9 a.m. in San Francisco or Sausalito aboard a 4x4 SUV, crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods via Mill Valley. Immerse yourself in a self-guided walking tour in this serene forest. Your guide will spin tales about the forest's history, and we've got your entrance tickets sorted to skip the lines. The hiking trail is easy and accessible, taking you across three bridges and around Kent Creek before looping back to a gift shop and café. We're flexible with time, customizing your journey to fit your interests.

Navigating Muir Woods’ tight parking lot can be tricky, but your guide/driver will drop you off hassle-free at the main entrance.

After your Muir Woods exploration, your guide will lead you away from the crowds to Muir Beach overlook, a stunning viewpoint on California State Route 1 by the Pacific Ocean. Next, venture to Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Olema, Inverness, Seahaven, Tomales, or Drakes Bay, exploring gorgeous beaches before embarking on the green tour to Point Reyes.

Accompanied by your passionate guide, soak in picturesque lagoons, meadows, and forests along Marin County's rugged coastline. Keep an eye out for wildflowers, sea otters, harbor seals, elk, elephant seals, and perhaps even whales! Our eco-tour also includes Bear Valley visitor center and its museum of natural history in Point Reyes.

Savor a beach picnic for lunch in Point Reyes National Seashore or downtown Point Reyes Station. Want more sights? Ask your guide about exploring further north to indulge in Point Reyes’ organic seafood, oyster farms, or an organic cheese factory and winery.

After lunch, drive through beautiful ranches and dairy farms, discovering hidden beaches where playful elephant seals flip sand on their backs.

Later, your guide will guide you to Point Reyes’ historic lighthouse, a bird and whale watching overlook. Around 80 biologists visit Point Reyes National Seashore yearly to study California ecosystems' climate change effects. Depending on the season and weather, you might spot Humpback and Blue Whales swimming by the lighthouse en route to Baja California or Alaska.

After this thrilling adventure, your guide will return you to your hotel in San Francisco or Sausalito. If desired, enjoy dinner in Sausalito and return to San Francisco via ferry (tickets not included).

This tour runs daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a luxury 4x4 SUV with a dedicated tour guide/driver. The price includes Point Reyes National Seashore park fees, taxes, and hotel pick-up or drop-off. You can also add up to two hours of extra time at a discounted rate.

Note: We're working on a two-day overnight travel package to ensure you experience all this enchanting area has to offer.

Tour Itinerary

9:00 a.m: Get whisked away from your hotel in San Francisco or Sausalito! Look for our friendly driver holding a sign with your name - that's your ticket to adventure!

9:40 a.m. Journey through the Muir Woods panoramic highway via Mill Valley en route to the majestic Muir Woods National Monument. Take a hike or join our lively guided walking tour amidst the colossal redwoods. Don't miss a chance to shop at the gift store or grab a coffee for a recharge.

Bid farewell to the stunning Muir Woods and head south to the Muir Beach overlook for an awe-inspiring view. Then, venture westward on California State Route 1 for a lunch stop at Stinson Beach, Bolinas, or Point Reyes.

Prepare for an exploration of Bolinas, a coastal gem embraced by the Pacific Ocean and charming lagoons, accessed through an unmarked country road. This hidden community boasts quaint cottages and a Gold Rush-era saloon.

Visit the Bear Valley Visitor Center in Pt. Reyes, a treasure trove of natural history. It's a treat for everyone, from families to solo adventurers, to uncover the geology and biology of Point Reyes National Seashore. Hiking trails await, leading through forests to panoramic coastal vistas.

Let your guide in on your interests, and we'll steer you right where you want to be. Sit back, relax, and soak in the breathtaking views of Point Reyes' landscapes and untamed wilderness.

We'll trek westward through picturesque countryside to reach Point Reyes' historic lighthouse. Prepare to be spellbound by Northern California's natural wonders, from wildflowers to harbor seals, elk, elephant seals, and perhaps even whales or dolphins, depending on the season and weather. Spot massive elephant seals lounging on the beach, or grab lunch nearby in Drakes Bay.

Consider an optional detour to Tomales Bay State Park if time and weather permit. This coastal haven, once inhabited by the Coast Miwok, is a blend of coves, beaches, marshlands, and forests steeped in rich history.

5 p.m. After your green escapade exploring Point Reyes' natural wonders in Marin County, cruise along the scenic Highway 1 or take the route via Fairfax and San Rafael back to San Francisco. While we won't make it to Sausalito due to time constraints, we highly recommend hopping off in downtown Sausalito for a ferry ride back to your hotel in San Francisco (ferry tickets not included).

Enhance your adventure! Point Reyes National Seashore and Marin County boast an array of attractions, impossible to cover in just eight hours. Extend your journey with our overnight tour package or add two extra hours to explore more sights like the Hog Island Oyster Farm, Tomales State Park beaches, savor fresh seafood at a Highway 1 eatery, and visit an award-winning creamery and cheese shop in picturesque Point Reyes Station.
