Sea Kayak - Blake Island

Leisurely day paddle from Pomeroy Park to Blake Island

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Sea Kayak III
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 6.7 nm

We will meet at 9:00 am at Pomeroy Park (Manchester) at 8067 E. Main Street, Port Orchard, WA.

This SK III paddle is designed to be a leisurely day paddle, taken at an "easy does it" pace.  It is about 6.7 nm RT. 

We will launch from Pomeroy Park in the Manchester portion of Port Orchard, cross to Blake Island, then circumnavigate the island and take a lunch break at the north beach.  If the sky is clear (fat chance!) we'll have a good view of the Seattle skyline.  If we get winds close to 10 kt, we may stay to the west side of Blake Island, rather than circumnavigating it, depending on the skill level of the participants.

Participants must wear a dry suit and warm clothes.

We will meet at 9:00 am and likely be back by around 2 or 2:30 pm.
