Well Folks, the shortest day of the year has arrived are we are ready for the sun to stay up past 4:15! These cold northwest nights have us dreaming of kayaking on blue bird days and enjoying campfire cooking.  With 2015 just around the corner, it is an excellent time to start looking ahead to summer vacation plans.  Overnight Kayak Tours are an excellent way to spend a weekend - or even a week! We run full service tours that provide all the gear and food so all you need to do is bring clothes and be ready for a trip you won't soon forget!  Overnight Kayak Tours are great for all ages and can be customized to fit your group's needs.  Doing a multi day tour also means that your chances of seeing orcas from a kayak increase!

Speaking of orcas, Southern Resident Killer Whales and Transient Killer Whales have been spotted in the Salish Sea throughout December.  Today there are reports of a large group of orcas, which sound like our SRKWs! During the winter months, resident orcas will travel as far south as Monterey Bay, California and up the West Coast of Vancouver Island in search of salmon.  J Pod tends to hang out in the Salish Sea more often than either K or L pod and is periodically spotted during these winter months.  While the resident orcas are fishing out at sea, transient orcas will be seen more regularly as there is a very healthy supply of their favorite meal: harbor seal.

We hope everyone is enjoying a nice cup of tea around a fire!
