Pleasant Harbor Paddle, formerly Kayak Brinnon, specializes in wildlife viewing kayak tours of the Hood Canal.
On this magical 2 hour night kayaking tour watch bioluminescent plankton light up the waters like fireflies as we paddle along the shoreline. Summer meteor showers often give us a show in the sky and bats swoop down to catch insects attracted to the light. Meet up at our office/store to sign in 15 minutes before your tour time. We will caravan to launch location.
Our Oysters on the Beach Tour is a 3.5 hour kayaking adventure to a secluded oyster beach where we will stop for lunch, go swimming and learn how to shuck fresh delicious Hood Canal oysters! Lunches provided for $16 each or bring your own.
On our Dosewallips Estuary Kayak Tour we paddle up the Hood Canal to the Dosewallips River Estuary and into the river sloughs to view a vast array of wildlife including seals, eagles, spawning salmon and sometimes our local herd of Roosevelt Elk!
Join us for our 2.5 hour American Bald Eagle viewing kayaking adventure! Eagles flock to our area in the spring when low tides and the Plain Midshipman Sculpin spawning season serves up easy pickings for Bald Eagles along the shoreline. Up-close encounters are common and the amount of eagles we see are astonishing!
