We will meet at 9:00 am for a 9:30 launch.

Immersion gear (drysuit) is required  due to expected cool weather conditions for this fall paddle. We will paddle along the east side of Harstine Island with the goal of getting to McMicken Island if time allows. Depending on weather conditions exact route details may change.  This is an SKIII paddle due to distance and open water.
