  • Sea Kayak IV
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 13.7 nm

Meet at Titlow Beach between 8am and 8:30am - in time for a 9am launch.  

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

  • Difficulty: SK-IV
  • Wind:  <20kt
  • Waves: <3'
  • Route: clockwise around island
  • Distance:  13 nm
  • Pace: moderate

We'll paddle from Titlow Beach south along the shore until we can cross directly over to the east end of Fox Island.  This trip has potential exposure to significant wind waves for about 60% of the time.
