Bioluminescence Paddle Tours (June, July, August 2022)

Last summer we worked with the wonderful maritime advocates at Community Boating Center Bellingham to create opportunities that lower barriers and increase access for Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color, American Asian, Pacific Islander, and biracial folx to get on the water and experience the mystery and magic of bioluminescence in Bellingham Bay. Bioluminescence is an amazing natural phenomenon in which an organism produces and emits light due to a chemical reaction where the chemical energy is converted into light energy.

It was such a success that we’re collaborating again this year and giving much earlier notice of the dates so folx can grab family, friends, and plan. These bio paddles are open to BIPOC, Latinx, AAPI, and our allies so let’s learn about marine life together.

No experience is necessary and all equipment will be provided by Community Boating Center.
