  • Sea Kayak II/III
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 3.0 nm

 We will meet at the end of Rosedale St. NW. Cut and paste the following into google  for directions :  " 47.33046348019272, -122.65548899999999  ".

We will meet at 4 and launch at 5 PM. I'm not so sure of these lat/long numbers. Basically, you drive west on Rosedale Road until- if you don't stop- you'll end up in the water.

Be prepared to stay out a bit late- you won't want to leave.

* Leaders permission required to sign up *

The potluck will be on Cutts Island, a short paddle from the launch and excellent sunset viewing. Please bring food to share at potluck.

You will need some kind of running light- white. Glow sticks work fine. Also bring a headlight or flashlight for walking around after dark.

After the sun goes down, we'll paddle back the long way and check out the bioluminescence. Rolling is optional. And cool!

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:  Easy
  • Wind:  10 kts
  • Waves:  1 ft.
  • Currents:  N/A
  • Distance:  3 nm
  • Pace:  Slow
