Experience Sea Kayaking

Kayaking
Want to see if sea kayaking is for you? Our Experience Sea Kayaking course is a great way to explore what sea kayaking is all about. Participants will be paired up to go out in our tandem sea kayaks, tandem sea kayaks are much more stable than singles; minimizing the possibility of tipping the boat. Learn about the parts of a sea kayak, safety gear needed for sea kayaking, paddle strokes, rudder steering, and experience out on the Bay what it is like to sea kayak. This course is a great introduction to the sport and short commitment to see if you might be interested in progressing into our Introduction to Sea Kayaking course.

Full Moon Group Paddle

Kayaking
Being on the water at night with the full moon as your light is truly magical. Come experience the sights and sounds as well as the feel of Bellingham Bay under moonlight! Our group outings are a mix of fun on the water, socializing, and basic skills instruction. All participants will be on our tandem sea kayaks, which are incredibly stable boats for new or novice paddlers. We'll provide instruction on entering/exiting, fitting, and maneuvering the boat, but the focus is the on-water experience. Our guides are experienced kayakers with knowledge of the local area, the skills to keep you safe, and plenty of experiences to learn from. Each guided evening paddle is three hours from start to finish with a break sometime in the middle. We'll provide light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, but please bring water and any personal snacks you'll want. If you've never been on Bellingham Bay or in a kayak, this is a great introduction to both! Full Moon Paddles occur as weather permits and pre-registration is required.
