Bioluminescence Paddle

Private Experience for up to 30 people.
Experience the Wonder of Bioluminescence at Night!

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. But experiencing it is so much more! It’s pure imagination! It is found throughout marine habitats, and lucky for us, can be found locally in Bellingham Bay from June-September. Our Bioluminescence Paddles often sell out, so reserve your space soon!

 

Coastal Explorer

Private Experience for up to 30 people.

We’re Here to Have Fun!  –  Join us for a guided afternoon of sea kayaking!

We will pick a destination as a group and start with a short introduction to equipment, paddle strokes and safety. 

Once we’re on the water we’re free to enjoy the glide! 

Keep an eye out for critters, the starfish are colorful and the seals are curious! 

With beautiful Bellingham to the north and luscious Larabee state park to the south, there is plenty to explore. All while silently slipping over riveting rock formations!

Corporate Regatta

Private Experience for up to 20 people.

The ultimate team building event- foster a competitive spirit & challenge old boundaries with our mini America’s Cup!  Each boat will have an Instructor onboard 

The beauty of the Bay, Baker and San Juan Islands will provide the photo opportunities of a lifetime.

Private Charter

Private Charter for a Captain and up to 5 Passengers.
Spend a few hours or a whole day aboard our J24! You pick the time and we’ll provide you with a US Sailing Instructor.  They’ll show you the ropes & you can sit back and relax while we get underway or try your hand at sailing!
