Earth Day Wildlife Tour


This is a great way to get out on the water with family and friends who are from out of town or who may not have a ton of on water experience.  Our guide will answer any questions, point out and educate paddlers about various wildlife and provide on water safety and guidance.

Itinerary:

When - April 22nd from 11am - 4pm

Where - This tour begins and ends at our rental facility in Poulsbo, and will last 5 hours. 

When paddlers first arrive we will pop into the Poulsbo science center adjacent to our facility and learn about some of the critters there.  Once we hit the water we will make our way to Keyport, which is 2 miles from our dock, to stretch our legs and grab a bite to eat/resupply if needed at the local store. Once rested and refueled we will head back to our dock in Poulsbo.
