On our 1.5 to 2 hour Introduction Tour we introduce you to the waters and wildlife of the Hood Canal and to the basics of kayaking! Whether you are a beginner or an avid kayaker, this tour is a great option for anyone wanting a short guided adventure to learn about our local wildlife with our Biologist or Naturalist. No matter your skill level, your guide will be there to help you paddle efficiently and safely and show you some of the breathtakingly beautiful locations on the Hood Canal! On this tour we often see eagles, harbor seals, fish, marine invertebrates and a variety of birds. Orca, sea lions and humpback whales have also been a treat on rare occasions!
Kids love tidepooling the rocky coastline of the Hood Canal!

What To Wear On A Tour
Dress for the weather! If it’s hot bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. If it’s rainy or cool wear a rain jacket, hat, and a pair of water resistant pants. Shoes or sandals that can get wet are recommended. Remember, you’ll be wearing a life vest which adds warmth and bulk so heavy jackets are not recommended. Most of our kayaks have dry hatches so you can always bring a little more than you might need if the weather is unpredictable. We also recommend bringing a bottle of water on all tours especially on hot days. Bring your camera and cell phone at your own risk. Most folks do, and there are rarely problems. We also have some dry bags to lend out but you may need to request one in advance.
