ottorsSea Kayaking
One of our favorite trips: following the designated Whale Trail, kayak the beautifully rugged and rocky cliff shoreline of Freshwater Bay on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From the comfort of your stable kayak, enjoy viewing bald eagles, otters, harbor seals, or maybe even a whale. Freshwater Bay is a fantastic location for birding, beachcombing and discovering intertidal life, such as seastars.  This is truly a wonderful trip for anyone that would like to explore a NW cliff laden shoreline with great opportunities for wildlife. Our guides know the places to take you for the best wildlife sightings; they also know all the areas protected from certain wind and weather conditions, therefore this guided kayak tour is suitable for most ages and abilities.

April- September, trips are scheduled at: 9:00 AM and 1:30 PM. We also offer a Sunrise trip paddling the Port Angeles Harbor which meets at 6:00 AM. The 6:00 AM Harbor trip and 9:00 AM Freshwater Bay half day trip are the best for wildlife with calmer conditions.

October- March, please call well in advance for availability and reservations. (360) 417-3015

Rates: Half Day Sea and Lake $79 adults/$59 (ages 12 and younger)                            Port Angeles Harbor Sunrise Tour- 2 hours, $69/person, all ages.
