Upper Back Bay, Newport Beach
From what I heard, it’s one of THE best spots to kayak in all of Orange County. There’s a stunning view of the wildlife. Upper Back Bay provides an area where the salt and fresh water meet. The calm waters guarantees the perfect afternoon.
Take a two-hour kayak tour with Newport Beach Conservancy. The tours are offered every Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. for $25 per person. This tour is for ages 8 and up. Learn more here. If you’d like to opt out of the tour, rentals are also available at Aquatic Center for $14-20 per hour.
