A visit to the Olympic Peninsula would be incomplete without experiencing camping on the Hood Canal! Kayak Brinnon is the only outfitter permitted to deliver kayaks and crab pots to the Olympic National Forest’s Seal Rock Campground. This popular waterfront campground is shaded by the forest, has waterfront access, campsite views of the Hood Canal, oyster beds for public use, interpretive nature trails, fresh water, bathroom facilities, a staging area for kayaks, and more. It is located only 32 miles south of Port Townsend and is within the Olympic National Forest. We will deliver kayaks to you at the campground for full day, overnight, or multi-day rentals To enjoy a feast of crab at your campsite rent a few kayak crab pots too!
Delivery to Seal Rock is only $10 which includes pick-up and is charged per load, not per kayak. Crab pots are $15 for the 1st day and $2 per additional day. Crabbing season generally runs mid-June through August. See the WDFW website for information on size limits, licenses and other shellfish harvest information. Click here for kayak rental rates.
If you choose to do a multi-day kayaking tour of the Hood Canal, this campground is an excellent place to camp along your route. We can help you plan a multi-day kayaking trip and facilitate your equipment needs and logistics. We also lead multi-day kayaking tours for groups. You must provide your own food and camping gear and we provide equipment and a Biologist Guide who will teach your group about the marine wildlife and Hood Canal ecosystem and show you how to catch your own crab and shellfish to cook up for dinner!
Camping gear can also be rented at Olympic Camping Rentals in Port Hadlock, WA.
Please give us 48 hours notice for deliveries and at least 2 weeks notice for guided multi-day camping trips.
