The protected shorelines of Deception Pass State Park are a wildlife viewing hotspot in Washington State. The fast moving waters in the Narrows under the Deception Pass Bridge circulate nutrients that feed a diverse web of life. Seals and porpoise occur in large numbers here. Bald eagles are plentiful, as well as falcons and hawks. Deer graze on grassy slopes, and playful otters frolick at water’s edge. In recent years we’ve seen more Orca whales here as they pass through the area hunting for food. Whether on land or at sea, you are sure to encounter plenty of animals in Deception Pass State Park!
The huge old growth trees provide a stunning backdrop to beautiful Bowman Bay, where our trips depart. In the distance the Olympic Mountains rise abruptly from the sea, and the massive Strait of Juan de Fuca stretches out to the Pacific Ocean. Kelp forests and twisted shorelines create a feast for the eyes. Deception Pass is one of the most beautiful places in the Puget Sound Region of Washington State.
Fun Place to Spend the Day!
If you have the opportunity, then make sure to plan to stay for several hours before or after your kayaking tour. Deception Pass State Park is a great place to have a picnic, take a walk, and let the kids have fun outside. Bowman Bay has a long beach that children find irresistible, and the shallow water is often warm enough for them to swim! Trails lead from the picnic area to some amazing views of the Deception Pass Bridge. When you arrive be sure to ask our friendly staff about other recreational opportunities.
These trips launch from the protected waters of the beach in Bowman Bay. Beach launching requires stepping in the water so be sure to bring the appropriate footwear!
