Sea Kayak - Boston Harbor Vicinity

Wednesday evening paddle out of Boston Harbor, Olympia, WA. Registration/sign up required. Route will be determined at the launch and designed for the group and weather/water conditions. Please know the goal is to manage the trip at the SK2-3 level, but the nature of this weekly trip series, and weather, is unpredictable. Participants need to assess their own comfort level and pay attention to wind levels the day of the trip. If it's very windy we will avoid as much as possible, but there are only so many options.
