It is hard to wait for the 2009 kayak tour season to really kick off here on San Juan Island. The weather has been so nice it is crazy. Though we have been running a few winter tours and I was on the water yesterday teaching lessons. It just seems not enough folks come up in the winter to take advantage of such good weather and water conditions we have been having. I keep looking at the forecast and thinking some of the Seattle kayaker weekenders might start showing up early. So far we have not been seeing much. The other day I was on the West Side of San Juan Island to catch one amazing sunet and had the opportunity to sea Dall’s Porpoise, River Otter, Bald Eagles and Stellar Sea Lions. That was from just sitting around in one place on the shore. It was pretty nice. The yesterday I was on the water to teach lessons and the water conditions was so calm it was great for do intro kayaking lessons. Plus with the sun high in the sky, we were really warm. After classes I visited the south end of the island to catch view of fox and various raptors flying around. Then at the end of the day I hired a new Guide for the 2009 season. It looks like he is going to be another great addition to the Discovery Sea Kayak Guide Team. So all in all it has been great out here. If you live in the region and would like to come out to San Juan Island and join a Kayak Tour. Get in touch with us. We are ready and set to get people on the water to enjoy this wonderful time of year.
