– Editor’s note:
As a repeat customer, I joined a Sunset and Bioluminesence Tour last week on an evening with clear skies and a half moon waxing above a mirror-glass surface on Puget Sound.
The patrons met at the assigned location at the Boston Harbor boat-ramp in Olympia, where we met Kayak Nisqually owner/operator Sam Kaviar, who is from my hometown, Louisville, KY. After a very thorough technique and safety demonstration, we were ready to go for our paddle. This kayaking experience is very different from canoeing in that one must paddle and use a rudder to turn the boat, where paddling is only used to turn in canoeing. Seeing the luminescent plankton sparkle in the dark waters was spectacular, something I had never seen so close-up. The 3 1/2 hour trip passed by way too fast, yet everyone left with wonderful experiences viewing the stars without distracting light, variety of birds, fog forming on the waters surface, and the beauty of the Olympics. We’re looking forward to our next tour on the South Sound with Sam during the misty, rainy Autumn.
What an outstanding kayaking tour guide!
