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.
