Overview
No experience is necessary to join this professionally guided kayak trip. Bowman Bay is the perfect place for beginners to feel comfortable paddling on the sea. It offers beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to seek out. Although this trip is conducted in Deception Pass State Park we avoid the turbulent water near the bridge which is more suitable for expert kayakers. If you plan to visit Deception Pass State Park then don't miss this wonderful opportunity to see it from the unique perspective of a sea kayak!

We had a lot of fun on our first kayaking excursion, our guide was great and we loved the experience all around. We got to see a few sea lions on our trip which was great since the fog was blocking the other views. We would for sure do it again!
