Paddle from Deer Harbor by Light of the Full Moon
Experience the magic of kayaking by the light of the full moon. These tours are only offered for a few nights around the full moon each month. Watch the sunset in the west, then paddle on to see the moon rise in the east and return under its glow.
These tours make for an unforgettable time on the water. We frequently see bald eagles, seals, and other marine life on these tours. Sunset is often the calmest, quietest time of the day.
Shearwater provides stable two-person kayaks, all the necessary kayaking gear, dry storage bags, and professional guide. No kayak experience is required. Our tours include 20-30 minutes of gear adjustment and basic instruction. Expect about two and a half hours on the water on this tour.
3-hour Moonlight Tours are offered from June – September.
Start times vary for this trip. Additional parking is available in the upper lot.
Meeting Location: Deer Harbor Marina. Meet us outside The Barge Gift Shop. Down the ramp on the right side of the main dock.
