Explore Rosario by Sea Kayak
Explore Orcas Island on a sea kayak tour from Rosario Marina with Shearwater Adventures! We keep our tour groups small for everyone’s enjoyment and comfort as we take in the stunning scenery and watch for wildlife. As we launch from the Rosario Marina, we paddle past the historic Moran Mansion.
Harbor seals, bald eagles, and great blue herons are often spotted along the shoreline, and occasionally otters, mink, and sea stars are seen. We then continue on and glide along the shores of East Sound on this three-hour Orcas Island sea kayaking adventure.
All children must paddle with an adult. The minimum age requirement to paddle in a tandem kayak is 10 years. At this location, we only have one seat available for children 5 to 9 years old to ride in a special “triple” kayak. Children in a triple must be accompanied by two adults. Call for details.
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 two and a half hours on the water for this tour.
Rosario and Deer Harbor are the only two locations that we offer Family Tours because they have less tidal current and offer more protection from the wind.
3-hour tours from Rosario are offered from June – September.
Meeting Location: Rosario Marina kayak trips meet above the beach next to Rosario’s Beach House conference center.
