Watch the Sun Set Over Orcas Island
West Beach is the perfect setting for launching a sunset kayak tour from Orcas Island. We launch from the beach in the early evening and spend over two hours paddling the surrounding area. Harbor seals, bald eagles, and harbor porpoise are common in this area. After exploring the area, we head back at dusk and watch the sunset from the water — a perfect way to end 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 two and a half hours on the water for this tour.
Must be 13 years or older to participate in this trip. Start times vary throughout the season.
3-hour tours from West Beach are offered from June – September. Additional parking is available in the upper lot.
Meeting Location: Trips meet outside the entrance to the resort office/shop.
