The Tomales Bay Resort is nestled on the shores of the beautiful Tomales Bay in Inverness CA.  This picturesque Cape Cod-style is the only lodging on the bay located inside of Point Reyes National Seashore Park. 

Looking for a get-away to get away from it all?  The Tomales Bay Resort is the best starting point for hours of adventure in the Point Reyes Seashore, Tomales Bay, Marin County and all of the Northern Bay area of San Francisco.   From stand up paddling to hiking, golfing and horseback riding, this retreat-style setting – full of creature comforts – is the ideal place to escape and take time for yourself.

Here’s the first hand report from Standup Journal photographer, Glenn Dubock.

Tomales Bay:  A natural awakening of the senses

Straddling two constantly moving pieces of earth, Tomales Bay is precariously parked on the San Andreas Fault.

Everything moves at a geophysic pace here, from the crawl of the one-car traffic jam through rush hour in downtown Inverness to the creeping of the tide on the bay as it does is daily shifting pattern.

Tomales Bay Resort:  A salt water healing get-away

My brother John and I have sought this place out to do some mind shifting of our own. We are guests of the Tomales Bay Resort and they have promised us a salt water healing like we have never known – and I for one believe them.

One look at this area, one lung full of this light briny air and you can’t help but shake all those city cobwebs away.

Come along for the journey

We will paddle with old and new friends during our visit here – and take you along for the ride with photos and stories that capture the magic of a slice of old California that has seismic possibilities for sup.

Stay tuned,

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
