Sea Kayak - Doe Island

Overnight trip to Doe Island.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers activity.
  • Sea Kayak IV
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 23.0 nm

UPDATE: We will meet at Washington Park between 11 and 11:30 for a launch time of 12:30. This trip is highly current dependent so leaving on time is critical. 

The return will be to Washington Park on Friday July 31. The launch time will be early - 6:45 am on the water. Again - we need to meet the time  set by nature when the water is moving. We should be back at Washington Park between 11am - 12pm.

I expect this sea kayak trip to have this difficulty and these conditions.  View the sea kayak difficulties definitions on the Activity Types page.
