Don't Miss in Anacortes, Washington
Sea Kayaking in Burrows Bay: A three-hour guided paddle from the Skyline Marina at sleepy Burrows Bay, a 15-minute drive from the tender dock, is the perfect way to get closer to the wildlife you'll have seen from the ship. Bald eagles swoop over the water searching for fish, inquisitive seals sometimes pop up to look at the kayaks and harbor porpoises show off their moves as you circle the rocky, wooded Allan Island -- a nature reserve. Along the shoreline you'll spot sea stars, crabs and swaying kelp forests. No experience is required; the kayaks are doubles and triples, easy to steer, and there's a full safety and technique briefing before you set off.
