Guided Kayak Day Trips

kayak group

With our kayak trailer, we now have access to many more wonderful spots to paddle. Join our naturalist guides as we explore the natural and human history of Cortes Island and the surrounding waters. From sunset paddles to gliding over reefs where an abundance of marine life and curious seals await, these guided kayak trips are a great way to get the feel for kayaking while having the guide there to help you along.

Bioluminescence Paddle

The Golden Light Before The Bioluminescence Appears

The Golden Light Before The Bioluminescence Appears

One of our favorite trips is the Bioluminescence Paddle. Towards the end of the summer the plankton which produces bioluminescence proliferate and the fairy dust sparkles it creates swirls away from our paddles as we kayak under the stars. It makes for a magical evening! No previous experience necessary. We provide all required safety equipment.

Multi-day guided kayaking mothership trips with the motor sailer Misty Isles are also available on request. For further information on mothership trips see Sail Charters.

We have scheduled afternoon paddles and evening paddles departing from Hollyhock regularly throughout the summer. Check the Trip Calendar for schedule information. These scheduled trips are open to anyone.
