During this four-hour kayak adventure, you will glide through the most pristine waters in Puget Sound as you circle the uninhabited and purely beautiful Squaxin Island. The island is entirely in a natural state, providing a rare opportunity to view wildlife including sea otters, seals, coyotes, deer and eagles. There are even documented sittings of the legendary Sasquatch or Zugwah as he’s known in our traditional language, Lushootseed. Listen to real stories of the Squaxin Island people from our professional guides. Share in the island’s majestic beauty and surreal peacefulness as you enjoy a short lunch break (provided) on the beach with swimming afterward.
Waterways of South Puget Sound, the inland Salish Sea!
Enjoy a quick two-hour trip to Hope Island State Park. There are trails for hiking, or you can simply kick back and enjoy the scenery as you eat a delicious lunch provided by our guides. Hope Island State Park is a 106-acre marine park accessible only by boat or kayak! Covered with old-growth forests and saltwater marshes, the park features a beach one-and-a-half miles long.
