Pleasant Harbor Paddle offers wildlife tours and kayak and stand-up paddle board (SUP) rentals from beautiful Pleasant Harbor on the Hood Canal.
Pleasant Harbor Paddle, formerly Kayak Brinnon, began as a small kayak delivery service operating in and around Brinnon, Washington in 2008 and now operates from the Pleasant Harbor Marina with a large fleet of kayaks and SUPs. Owner/Operator Christina Maloney is a former NOAA Fisheries Biologist and also worked for Washington State Fish and Wildlife’s Point Whitney Shellfish Laboratory where she fell in love with the beauty of the Hood Canal. Christina moved to Brinnon from Seattle in 2008 with a dream to help others discover the beauty and amazing wildlife of the area. In addition to renting kayaks and SUPs for folks to explore on their own, Christina personally guides educational tours to our nearby estuaries where harbor seals, bald eagles, and other animals congregate. From a kayak, Christina uses her 12 years of experience as a Biologist and her profound love for nature to teach people of all ages about the local natural system and about the wildlife that depend on it. In addition to kayak tours and SUP and kayak rentals, Pleasant Harbor Paddle rents small kayak sized crab pots during crabbing season, and delivers kayaks and crab pots to vacation homes and Seal Rock Campground for overnight and multi-day rentals.
