Boating, Kayaking & Paddle Boarding

The scenery is incomparable, with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and distinctive geological features. Delight in the sight of Carson Peak from June Lake, or Mammoth Mountain from Lake Mary. See how many of the 300 species of birds who frequent Mono Lake you can spot. Many visitors have even been thrilled to spot eagles and black bears during their boating adventures.
