Welcome to the 2021 Point Roberts Kayak Program
If you registered for the program in 2020, it is not necessary to sign up again this year. To confirm you are still registered and able to reserve a kayak, email us at email@example.com.
A. Sign Up for the Program
In order to sign up for the program and take out a kayak, please complete the following steps:
Print, sign and return the Kayak Rules, Safety and Waiver document. Please complete one form for each adult participant. This document contains safety and legal information that must be read and signed (in all 3 sections).
You must also provide proof that:
(a) You are a Whatcom County resident. Please provide a copy of your driver’s license or other identification noting Whatcom County residence like a bank statement or utility or water district bill, or
(b) You are a Point Roberts property owner. Please provide a print-out from the County website or a copy of your property tax form.
Once you have signed the Kayak Rules, Safety & Waiver, please email it along with your proof of residency/property ownership to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please contact us at email@example.com if you are unable to email registration materials directly to us.
We will notify you when you are registered and able to reserve a kayak using the online system!
B. Reserve a Kayak
You must kayak in pairs, either in two district kayaks or one district kayak and one personal kayak.
Please submit 1 reservation request for person/kayak.
Reservations are limited to 3 hours.
Kayaks are available on a first come, first serve basis. There are 4 single kayaks and 2 double kayaks, life jackets and paddles.
Every time you wish to reserve a kayak please complete the Schedule Request Form for each kayaker and wait for confirmation of your reservation. Be sure to list who you will be kayaking with as your partner and include a phone number if they are not registered with the district program.
Same Day Reservation Requests will not be accepted.
Once we receive your request and confirm your reservation, you will be able to access the kayaks, located in the parking lot of Lighthouse Marine Park. The kayaks must be locked at all times except when they are being unloaded and loaded. Please ensure you replace the lock immediately.
You must have a partner in a second kayak to go out with to make a reservation. A partner in the second seat of a double kayak does not meet this requirement. IF they choose a double kayak, they should specify the name of the person in the 2nd seat, whether or not they are registered with us. When specifying the name of the person in the partner kayak, they should specify if that person is registered with the District or using their own kayak.
This is a free program provided by the Point Roberts Park & Recreation District.
