2011 Haunted Halloween Toxic Boat Tour Report

Posted on:

We had a great Halloween Haunted History/Toxic Terrors Tour in 2011!

We were super lucky to have great personalities join us this year. Thank you, Salvador Dali, Che Guevara, Neo and others!

Attendees also witnessed firsthand what can happen to you if you are exposed to hazardous toxic chemicals (you become a toxic zombie!). Thank you, everybody, for being such great friends, partners and supporters! Check out our pictures here!In 2011, thanks to the generosity of National Wildlife Federation and Alki Kayak Tours, we were able to provide free, or pay-what-you-can, tours to people in the community who wouldn’t have been able to participate otherwise. This year nearly 80 participants saw the River up close during the 6 evening kayak tours, viewed habitat restoration areas, ongoing Superfund cleanup sites, riverfront neighborhoods, and wildlife!Check out the amazing photographs taken by our great friend and supporter, Robyn Turner, on our August 3, 2011 Summer Community Kayak Tour here.Chartered tours included information on water quality monitoring and how to report suspicious discharges to the Dept of Ecology and Puget Soundkeeper Alliance; participants helped collect water samples from the South Park waterfront and discharging stormdrains for the Sound Citizen program.

Also of note: In his free time, Captain Ed of Kitsap Harbor Tours and his wife run Isla Holbox Spay-Neuter program, which provides free basic animal care including animal sterilization to communities in Mexico. Way to go, Ed!
