Trip Spotlight – Fox Island Sea Kayaking Day Trip

One of the many options available during this trip


Join us as we explore the Fox Island coastline of sheer ocean cliffs and deep, forest cloaked coves. Optional routes include circumnavigating the island and experiencing the outer coast or exploring the Fox Island spit and the coves of Cape Resurrection. Your route will be chosen at your guide’s discretion with consideration to wind, waves and the groups’ abilities. Along the way we'll stop for a stretch and a picnic lunch on one of the cobblestone beaches dotting the coastline. This adventure is designed for the active traveler and while experience is not necessary, you must be in reasonably good shape. This active tour may involve up to 12 miles of paddling.

This tour includes a one-hour morning wildlife cruise to Fox Island, following by kayaking instruction, a picnic lunch and approximately 5.5 hours of kayaking. Upon your return to Fox Island you will enjoy a full salmon & prime rib dinner buffet. Children 12 and up are welcome to kayak this excursion with an adult in our two person kayaks.

My favorite thing about this trip is showcasing the distinctive geological features of Fox Island. The island itself is composed of rocks from two different tectonic plates. The North American Plate and Pacific Plate once met below Resurrection Bay and the two sides of the bay have completely different types of rock formation as a result. Sitting in the middle of the bay, Fox Island is a unique land mass that paddlers on the full day trip will be able to explore.
