Welcome to the 2022 Point Roberts Kayak Program

 

Follow the steps below to begin kayaking!

A. Sign Up for the Program

In order to sign up for the program and take out a kayak, please complete the Kayak Rules, Safety and Waiver form.  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):

Kayak Rules, Safety & Waiver Form

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, scan and email it along with your proof of residency/property ownership, contact phone number and email address to:
kayak.prpr@gmail.com

If you are unable to scan all of the registration information, then please mail it to us at:
Point Roberts Park & Recreation District
Kayak Program
PO Box 156
Point Roberts, WA 98281

We will notify you via email when you are registered and able to reserve a kayak using the online “Schedule Request Form” (Step B).

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 per person/kayak. Reservations are limited to 3 hours.

Kayaks are available on a first come, first serve basis.  You are only allowed to have 2 active reservations at a time within a 2 week time period. There are 4 single kayaks and 2 double kayaks, life jackets and paddles. You can check the Kayak Calendar to see if kayaks are available at the time you wish to reserve. Please complete the Schedule Request Form every time you wish to use a kayak. These forms must be completed for each kayaker before we will issue a confirmation. Be sure to list who will be your kayaking partner and include a phone number if they are not registered for the program.

Schedule Request Form

**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.  We need at least 2 days notice for kayak reservations to be processed. Please pay attention to confirmation notices since access codes to the kayaks may change. The kayaks must be locked at all times except when they are being unloaded and loaded.  Please ensure you replace the lock immediately.

Buddy System

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 you choose a double kayak, you will need to specify the name of the person in the 2nd seat, and whether or not they are registered with us.  When specifying the name of the person in the partner kayak, you will need to specify if that person is registered with the District kayak program or if they are using their own kayak.

This is a free program provided by the Point Roberts Park & Recreation District.
