Wildcat Cove | 3 Hour Tour

Welcome to Bellingham, WA. Twenty minutes south of us you’ll meet your friendly sea kayak guide at one of our favorite local paddling destinations. Our half-day adventure is an excellent introduction to sea kayaking in the San Juans, accessible from one of the most beautiful roads in Washington State.

During our time together we will enjoy 2-3 hours of on-the-water paddling and exploration, beginning with a “hands-on” introduction to acquaint new paddlers with safety procedures and equipment. Gliding across Chuckanut Sandstone formations and keeping an eye out for wildlife, we will stop and stretch our legs on a Nature Conservancy protected Island in the bay or a beautiful beach along the way. We love sharing the history of our backyard, full of surprises and wonder – we can’t wait to share it with YOU.
