Bachelor Slough Kayak

The weather last weekend was perfect so we decided to get out and do a little kayaking.


We went up to Ridgefield, Washington and kayaked around Bachelor Slough in the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge. It was a great spot for birding and just a nice relaxing paddle. We were out on the water for about three hours and managed to see many birds (Cliff Swallow nests are pictured below), as well as other wildlife.

If you’re looking for a great place to rent kayaks, Ridgefield Kayak is a great option. They were very nice and the kayaks and gear were in great shape. They also do kayak tours and lessons.
