Come to the Community Boating Center to experience Bellingham Bay!
Want to see if sea kayaking is for you? Our Coastal Explorer is a great way to explore what sea kayaking is all about. Participants will be paired up to go out in our tandem sea kayaks, as tandem sea kayaks are much more stable than singles, minimizing the possibility of tipping the boat. Learn the basics of sea kayaking while experiencing breathtaking Bellingham Bay. Learn about the native flora and fauna of the Salish Sea while gaining confidence on the water. This paddle is perfect for those looking to spend a few hours on the water, get an easy introduction to sea kayaking, or to see if they might be interested in progressing into our Introduction to Sea Kayaking course. This tour is also a great way to gain experience in a tandem kayak before a night paddle.
On these group paddles you will be paired up to go out in tandem sea kayaks; no need to bring a partner, we will make sure everyone has someone to kayak with whether it is another participant or an instructor. No prior kayaking experience is needed, we will go over the boat adjustments to make sure you are comfortable and in control of the boat, dress you in safety gear, go over safety procedures and kayak strokes, and teach you how to get in and out of your boat.
We recommend these tours for ages 15+.
