EXPERIENCE DETAILS

In the quaint, coastal community of Half Moon Bay you’ll find miles of gorgeous beaches, quiet country roads and forests of towering redwoods. Along with the unique boutiques and stunning art galleries, this town creates the perfect escape for a couple needing a romantic weekend away.

A guided horseback ride on the beach sets the mood after landing, with the coastal bluffs and expansive Pacific Ocean views providing the perfect backdrop to start the weekend. Following a relaxing lunch, your five-star resort accommodations await.

The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay is unlike any other, with small details like Adirondack chairs surrounding the outdoor fire pits along with rooms that define luxury. Each room comes with full marble bathrooms featuring oversized soaking tubs, comfortable king-sized beds and views of both the resort’s golf course and the nearby coastal mountains. That evening, explore the property on your own or walk to the nearby tidepools and watch the sunset from the beach.

See the seabirds and the harbor seals up close the next morning with a kayak tour of the Pillar Point Harbor, followed by a fresh seafood lunch. That afternoon, head to a nearby glass studio for a hands-on glassblowing class where you will make your own creation — perhaps a miniature pumpkin like the ones the area is known for? — before some wine tasting at the next door winery.

On your final day, enjoy a stroll on the beach or a hike along the coastal trail before touring a local dairy farm. Have your photo taken with one of the goats before trying out their cheeses for yourself. Have a final lunch among the redwoods — you may be tempted to hide in the forest rather than board the plane home that night.

FAQ

What will the glassblowing class be like?
The glassblowing class will be an intro level course and it will begin with a full demonstration of the process and techniques.  You will then receive one on one time with the glass artist who will help you mold your glass into a pumpkin for example.  Your piece will finish overnight and then it will be picked up the following day or shipped home for a small additional fee. Please note it is required that all attendees wear closed toed shoes and are 12 years of age or older.

Will it be too cold to kayak? 
The average high for Half Moon Bay in October is 66 degrees Fahrenheit and the average water temperature is 57 degrees Fahrenheit.  While water temperatures off Half Moon Bay are known to be cold, it is not anticipated that you will get wet.  However, our kayak outfitter will still provide wetsuits and waterproof jackets to guests.  It is also recommended that you bring an extra change of dry clothes with you to change into after the kayaking experience.

I noticed we will be having lunch at a seafood restaurant, what if I don’t eat seafood or am allergic to seafood?
We understand if seafood is not your thing.  While the restaurant is known for its fresh seafood, they serve amazing non-seafood dishes as well! In the event of an allergy, please notify your Manifest Customer Care Representative, and we will come up with a solution that works for you.
