Christina was a great combination of both professional and very knowledgeable guide. Having been a marine biologist, she provided a lot of very interesting facts and information on the wildlife of the Puget Sound. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great kayaking adventure and wanting to learn more about the local animals (birds, fish, plants).

January, froze my ass off (along with my fingers, so couldn’t even massage any additional circulation in there). But the lady brought the kayaks on New Year’s day, loaded them into the water for us, and was super helpful.

If I come back in the summer, I will definitely rent from these guys again, and am sure it will be even more enjoyable!Yelp

We just completed a delightful trip in the Hood Canal with Christina. She is extremely knowledgable and fun to be with. We saw bald eagles and seals with baby pups. We were in a tandem kayak and had many photo ops. We highly recommend Kayak Brinnon for your next adventure”. Trip Advisor

We took a two-hour tour with Kayak Brinnon. Christina, the owner of this operation, was fantastic. She’s a former marine biologist, and could answer a lot of my questions about the marine mammals. She was also extremely helpful in spotting seals in the water, as well as bald eagles perched in nearby trees. We were all beginners, so it was really nice to have a guide who is so patient and allows everyone time to rest, and makes sure no one gets too far ahead or falls too far behind.

Before we booked our tour, we talked with Christina on the phone for about half an hour. She told us the best time to go out (the time when the harbor seals are most active). Even better, she responded right away when we called her for a reservation, and was very pleasant to deal with; other kayaking tours in Port Townsend required more advance notice (7 days) than we had, and took more than a day to get back to us.

The owner Christina was extremely helpful. I chose to do an overnight trip, I didn’t have any set plans on where to go, Christina helped me choose a route that would be good for the weather. Extremely easy to rent from, they will deliver kayaks to a various number of boat launches and state parks. I will definitely be going back again this summer! Yelp

New to sea kayaking. Christina was very patient and helpful in giving us tips. We thoroughly enjoyed our impromptu overnight sea kayak camping experience in the Hood Canal. Google +
