Come experience bioluminescence on Bellingham Bay with the Community Boating Center! Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is found throughout marine habitats, and lucky for us, can be found locally in Bellingham Bay, where bioluminescent phytoplankton light the water each summer from June – September. Since phytoplankton are invisible to the naked eye, they are often forgotten, but when you witness phytoplankton luminesce, the experience is as unforgettable as seeing a whale. Often, our Bioluminescence Paddles sell out, so we recommend reserving your space as far in advance as possible. This paddle is only offered during the summer months when bioluminescent plankton are visible in Bellingham Bay. Bring family, friends, or a date! Bioluminescence is a magical experience for any and all to enjoy together.
On these group paddles you will be paired up to go out in tandem sea kayaks; no need to bring a partner, we will make sure everyone has someone to kayak with whether it is another participant or an instructor. No prior kayaking experience is needed, we will go over the boat adjustments to make sure you are comfortable and in control of the boat, dress you in safety gear, go over safety procedures and kayak strokes, and teach you how to get in and out of your boat.
We recommend these tours for ages 15+.
