Kayaking the Hood Canal

The Hood Canal's protected waters are ideal for kayaking, beginners, novices, families, and seasoned paddlers alike. Many sheltered coves, bays, and inlets provide calm waters with serene beaches and beautiful landscapes. Popular launch sites include Pt. Whitney, Pleasant Harbor, Seal Rock Campground, Yelvik's Boat Ramp, Dosewallips State Park, and Triton Cove, among others. Broad Spit County Park is an undeveloped, boat-in only, “leave no trace” kayaking destination that permits camping on the east side of the Bolton Peninsula. For more information regarding the kayak park please call Matt Tyler of Jefferson County Parks and Recreation at (360) 385-9129. Kayak Brinnon provides kayak rentals and SUP's and tours from Yelvik's Beach in Brinnon and will deliver kayaks to locations between Potlatch and Quilcene.
