Anacortes, on beautiful Fidalgo Island, is an amazing destination for out-of-state visitors and Washington State residents. For the sea kayaking community it is an outstanding launching point for day trips along its scenic shorelines, multi-day expeditions into the San Juan Islands, or for adrenaline-packed adventures inside Deception Pass.
Off of the water activities are numerous as well. If you are going to come here then it is worth scheduling some extra time to explore some of the 50+ miles of trails in our Anacortes Community Forest Lands (ACFL) and Deception Pass State Park.
Below we have information that can help you plan where to stay, eat, and play before and after your experience with Body Boat Blade.

To be honest, we just felt the need to highlight a Body Boat Blade traditional watering hole. The locally famous Brown Lantern Tavern.
Some things just don’t need to change and all of you who have supported BBB over the years know perfectly well that we will be heading here often for post-class meals and drink!
