Whatcom County

New Whatcom Rowing

Is the first rowing club in the Northwest dedicated to open-water rowing. You can now enjoy the peace, wonder, and superb health benefits of rowing year-round right here on Bellingham Bay. The sheltering effect of South Hill from prevailing southerlies, allows New Whatcom rowers to row year-round between Fairhaven and Cornwall/GP (New Whatcom) alongside Boulevard Park. Loons, Goldeneyes, Cormorants, and curious harbor seals inhabit this calm stretch of water. No row is complete without a curious harbor seal popping up behind your boat. For more information please contact PO Box 4435, Bellingham, WA 98227 or visit

Whatcom Association of Kayak Enthusiasts

Welcome to WAKE. We're a non-profit social kayaking organization based in Bellingham, WA, open to any adult who wants to paddle in the Pacific Northwest. Our focus is sea kayaking, however, we do have many whitewater kayakers as members.
