Kayaking

Kayaking

Grays Harbor abounds with rivers and creeks that provide the perfect setting for fun kayaking!

In the 20th century, this expansive web of rivers helped put Grays Harbor on the logging and shipping map for decades. Today, pilings, old stumps, and similar remnants remain in some places, serving as a reminder of Washington Coasts`s rich history.

Bring your kayaks or rent some at Buck`s Bikes in town, and head out on a kayaking adventure on the rivers nearby!

Options are a plenty. The Wishkah and Hoquiam rivers, which you can hop on from Aberdeen and Hoquiam on your way to Seabrook, wind past old ship yards, sunken ships, and under bridges.

The Copalis River, just a few miles south from Seabrook, offers an adventure through the famous Ghost Forest - a marshy area full of tree trunks from trees that died in an earthquake and tsunami several hundred years ago. If you time it right, you might even see some jumping salmon on the Copalis as you kayak along.
Skimboarding

Skimboarding

Have you seen those skinny wooden boards and wondered what exactly they are for? Low and behold, one of the simplest and funnest activities you can do at the beach - skimboarding! Just grab a board, run up in the very shallow surf, drop the board in front of you and glide on the water. It`s actually a ton of fun and a great workout. When you feel a little more comfortable on the boards, you can try spinning the board or skimboarding on a log or pipe (if one`s around). Just be careful - if you look this up on youtube you will spent hours looking at some amazing skimboarding tricks by some very talented people. Swing by Buck`s Bikes in town and rent a board if you don`t already have one. You will not regret it.
Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding

If you`re looking for a fun water activity that is also an excellent body and core workout, stand up on a paddleboard and hit the water! Grab your own and bring it to the beach (there are many inflatable paddle boards now that are easy to pack and set up), or stop by Buck`s Bikes and rent one from their fabulous selection. You will also be able to sign up for a 90 minute paddleboarding class with Buck that will guide you through some of the sports best practices for the ultimate enjoyment on the water.

Surfing

Surfing

The North Beach may not be the best known for big surfing waves, but it is actually perfect for those still learning and working on getting comfortable on a longboard in the surf. Bring your surfboard or rent one from Buck`s Bikes and be on the lookout for higher winds - this will ensure the best possible surfing at Seabrook. As soon as you see whitecaps on the water in the distance, it`s time to hit the waves. You can try to catch some of the medium sized waves as they crash or for a smoother, easier time on the water, just wait for the smaller, tumbling white waves to pull you and your board so you can practice your pop up and form. Seabrook is the prime spot to get that gliding form down so your surfing pictures can look totally awesome.
