A great way to get outside this fall is to try a kayaking tour of Upper Newport Bay. The Newport Aquatic Center is offering kayaking tours to enjoy seeing egrets, terns, and skimmers. You might even catch a glimpse of silver millet and stingrays. This is a protected area, so participants will have access to areas they normally would not. The tour guide will answer all your questions. The kayaking tour take place every Saturday at 10am. Cost is $25 per person. After your kayak experience, feel free to have a picnic lunch on North Star Beach, around the back of Newport Aquatic Center. Newport Aquatic Center is located at 1 Whitecliffs Drive in Newport Beach.  For more information, see their website at:
