Colvos Passage


Sea Kayak - Colvos Passage

Trail of the Trolls: explore the northern shoreline of Colvos Passage

  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 nm

9am at the end of Sebring Dr, a slip road just north of the Southworth Ferry. Parking may have a modest fee. Put into your GPS 11593 SE Sebring Dr, Port Orchard, WA. No public toilet at launch.  There is a restaurant up the road.

I expect this sea kayak trip to have this difficulty and plan to paddle in up to these conditions (view the sea kayak difficulties definitions on our Activity Types, Difficulties & Prerequisites page):

  • Difficulty:  SKIII
  • Wind: <12kts
  • Waves: <2ft
  • Currents: <1kt
  • Distance:  10nm
  • Pace: moderate

Immersion wear required.
Bring Lunch. We'll do some meandering along both shores of Colvos Passage, and the subtitle of this paddle will be revealed!
