Biologist Guided Kayak Tours!

Hood Canal Adventures offers a variety of Biologist and Naturalist guided kayaking adventures on the Olympic Peninsula. Many tours are led by the owner, former Marine and Fisheries Biologist Christina Maloney. As you paddle along the shoreline of the Hood Canal you will learn about the wildlife and ecology of the Puget Sound.  All tours offer the opportunity to learn about the area while viewing beautiful scenery, seals, eagles and other wildlife. We offer a number of tours to choose from and some are seasonal.  In many cases you can pick your own date and time. Tours include at least one guide, a single or tandem kayaks, paddle, pfd, and all safety equipment. Prices shown do not include local and state sales/service taxes.  (Harvesting crab during the tour may also be arranged during crabbing season. Click on each tour title below for details.)

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.
