ABOUT US

Established in 2011 - the Bellingham Bay Outrigger Paddlers club (BBOP) has become a mainstay for helping to get our local communities out on the water on a regular basis. The club consists of Men, Women and Co-Ed competitive teams as well as a large Recreational group and a youth program dedicated to enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest ocean scenery. Outrigger canoes launch from the beautiful waterfront in Fairhaven at the Community Boat Center located at 555 Harris Street in Bellingham.

BBOP is a federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and all donations are 100% tax deductible.

BBOP is a 100% volunteer run organization
