Blake Island


Sea Kayak - Blake Island

This is for Tacoma Branch, Basic Sea Kayak Student. We’ll most likely see some anchored ships as we paddle across to the NW corner of Blake Island, known-as Subm Pile. We’ll take a short break before heading Counter Clockwise around Blake Island. We’ll stop for lunch at the park that’s located on the NE corner of the island. There are a few things with-in hiking distance that you might wish to pock around or not. Depending on weather.
