“Snug in our kayaks, we will glide through kelp beds along shoreline galleries of fantastically sculpted sandstone and cross between islands in a dance with the moon and the tides…” – Sharmon Hill (Founder).

What Our Guests Have to Say

Best Half Day Family Trip Ever!

Magical half day trip. We took our nieces ages 7 and 9, they loved all of the wildlife! We got to see seals, great blue herons and so many animals in tidal pools. Beautiful paddling on picturesque bays. Can't wait to come back and do more!

Fantastic trip loved by all!

Fantastic overnight kayak/overnight camping trip to Clark Island with our guide, Laura. Moondance does a great job with communication, equipment, food and excellent guide with the knowledge and demeanor to work with kids and adults alike.

Exciting and relaxing adventure!

I really enjoyed my trip with Moondance and definitely recommend the company to those seeking a professional and personalized kayak tour in the Bellingham area. I went on the bioluminescence kayak trip on Friday night and had a fun and memorable experience.

Wildcat Cove Half-Day Kayak Tour

This was our second tour led by Amber, and what stands out is her genuine interest and enthusiasm for marine life. Throughout the tour she was pointing out seabirds, naming the undersea creatures we saw, explaining the role of eelgrass and kelp. The pace was pleasant, the scenery fabulous, the experience rewarding. Thank you!

Breathtaking sunset kayak

We enjoyed the sunset kayak at wildcat cove. There weren’t originally any available slots but after calling Moondance they arranged to creat another tour to fit us in, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the islands, sea life and nature. Highly recommend and can’t wait to take a multi bday kayak trip with them.

Our guide, Dom, was outstanding. Super calm, knowledgeable, and genuine. If you’re new to kayaking or simply want to explore the area I highly recommend!

What a great way to see the world!

I did a day trip out of Larabee State Park which was awesome. Saw lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery. The guide was very knowledgable and shared lots of tid bits about the biology and geology of the area.

A lovely way to see the coastline!

We did a three-hour tour from Larrabee, and it was so much fun! We were newbies, as was everyone else on the tour, and our guide was fun and helpful. Great way to spend a morning, seeing the coastline from a completely new perspective, and getting a little exercise in, to boot.

Lovely day. Highly recommend

Great in so many ways: shoreside training, equipment, views, herons, shoreline geology, seals, sea stars, enthusiasm, fresh air and sunshine on the sea. Who could ask for more?!
