Mother and Son Enjoying a “Taste” of Sea Kayaking
The “Taste of Sea Kayaking” is a great, low-cost way to try out a sea kayak and get a little instruction, just to see if the activity is something you’d enjoy. In recent weeks, we’ve had several of them, and our participants have had a fun time (as have we). We’ve JUST ADDED a “Taste” on Saturday, July 23 (10 am – 1 pm).
In August, we have 2 on the calendar: on Sunday the 7th from 10 am to 1 pm and on the evening of the 24th from 6 pm to 9 pm. Of course, we may be able to schedule other sessions (particularly on weekdays or weekday evenings). For parties of only 2 or more, our group rate applies.
No worries if these dates don’t work for you. We know you’re busy! Just give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to schedule a “Taste” class on a day/time that works for your schedule.
We’ll provide all the gear you need, including a sea kayak, life jacket, wetsuit, and paddle; some basic instruction on how to paddle the boat; and lots of Q & A as we paddle on Lake Whatcom.
If you get “bitten by the bug,” you even get to put half of your “Taste” fee towards our “Experience Sea Kayaking” comprehensive 10-hour course!
Summer is here! Come join us for a good time on the water, and get a “Taste” of one of the greatest activities in the Pacific Northwest!
Advance registration is required.
Sea Kayaking Hale Passage and Lummi Island’s West Side
Summer has arrived! To celebrate, we had a Summer Solstice Paddle on Monday evening the 20th. Departing from Gooseberry Point and paddling all the way to the entrance of Legoe Bay, on Lummi Island’s west side, we had smooth waters through Hale Passage and just a little wind chop on the way back. The sunset was gorgeous and the full moon rising as we were loading up at the end of the paddle was the perfect cap to a great evening.
We saw some lion’s mane jellyfish, lots of moon jellies, eagles, kingfishers, harbor seals (one of which was seen chowing down on a fish dinner), and a congregation of river otters. The otters, 7 or 8 of them, scampered off a tiny patch of sand and swam ahead of us for several hundred years, “spy hopping” and grunting at our presence.
Our next Fun Paddle is this coming Sunday, the 26th; but we have others on the calendar and might even have some “last minute” ones added. Come join us! Click here to register. To view Fun Paddles scheduled in July and August, check out our calendar.
Remember: if you own your boats and gear, there’s no charge; and it’s only $40 per person if we supply you with everything you need. Just register and make your payment on the website.
