Event Series Event Series: Half Day Kayak Tour & Oyster Shucking

Oyster Shucking & Kayaking Tour

May 20, 2007 @ 11:00 am - May 31, 2007 @ 6:30 am


Our Kayaking & Oyster Shucking Tour is half day adventure leaving from our location at Yelvik’s Beach. We will paddle a little over an hour around breathtaking Pulali Point and into Dabob Bay viewing seals, eagles and other wildlife before arriving at a small secluded beach where we will eat lunch, learn to shuck oysters, and harvest your limit of fresh Hood Canal oysters right off the beach! Along the way your Marine Biologist or Naturalist guide will teach you about the Hood Canal and the wildlife we will encounter.  Bring your camera as we usually see eagles up close as we paddle underneath their perching trees and watch them hunt fish often right in front of our kayaks! Harbor Seals, porpoises, river otters, fish, and many species of marine invertebrates are also a familiar site. More rarely, Orcas and Steller Sea Lions have been spotted.

During crabbing season (July-Sept), you can also add kayak crabbing to your tour and catch your own Dungeness and Red Rock Crab! Bring your catch back to your vacation rental or campsite and cook them up with your oysters for a seafood feast! You must provide your own WDFW shellfish license to harvest oysters and crab. Click on the link provided or visit the Brinnon General Store to obtain a license.

Bring your own lunch or arrange with us to provide a pic-nic from lunch from The Crow’s Nest Bistro ($17.50 each). Contact us to place your order. Lunches come with a meat or vegi tortilla wrap, fresh fruit, dessert, and a soda or water.

Wear shoes that can get wet. Flip-flops and slip-on sandals are not advisable as there are many sharp oysters on the beach.

If you do not see your desired date on the Calendar, simply contact us to arrange your preferred date.  We can conduct this tour almost any day of the year.

For information on what to wear, our refund and cancellation policy and more, see our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Your guide gladly accepts cash tips.
