On our paddle, we'll focus on the abundant marine and land creatures, the amazing natural history and rich cultural story of our really special area as well as kayaking technique and safety. I am highly versed in the countless animals we'll see on nearly every trip, from seals and sea lions, otters, jellyfish, eagles and other birds.. Even grey whales and orca every now and then! I'm an amateur geology buff - and the area is absolutely rich in astounding, very visible geologic history. A kayak is an amazing platform from which to discover "The Whidbey Formation" as well as many other Ice Age era features. Never paddled before? Have young kids? No worries! Beginners and little ones are absolutely welcome. Guests should be able to paddle at an easy pace for 90 minutes and if you have little ones, they can just be passenger. We stay close to shore at all times for safety - and better exploring! I use very stable double and single kayaks. Start times and days may be flexible, just inquire! For those with more experience (or guts!) I also offer a longer, more involved tour - see "Explore Saratoga Passage by Kayak" in Experiences for more info. See you on the water!
I have been a sea kayak guide for four years and have paddled extensively throughout the Puget Sound region over the last decade-plus. My personal passion is long-haul, multi-day kayak camping trips, most notably a three-week, 200-mile solo trip from one end of Puget Sound to the other. I literally grew up on the water in Washington State and have sailed over 25,000 miles - the equivalent of going around Earth! I spent two years as a deckhand on a deep-ocean research vessel, have raced sailboats.. I have a deep and powerful respect for the sea - you'll be very safe with me!
Kayaking and safety gear I'll provide everything needed for a fun and safe tour, including dry bags for clothes and Ziplock…
We will launch our trip from Clinton Beach Park, directly adjacent to the ferry terminal. From there we'll head north along the shore of Saratoga Passage for a mile or so to our U-turn spot. If you're looking for a longer, more involved trip, please see my "Explore Saratoga Passage by Kayak" tour!
