Goat Island


Sea Kayak - Goat Island

Counter-clockwise around mysterious Goat Island with a stop to explore the remains of Fort Whitman; launching and returning to the Sherman Street Boat Ramp, just south of downtown La Conner.

  • Sea Kayak II
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 8.0 nm
  • High Point Elevation: 100 ft
  • Pace: Leisurley

Please plan to be at the Sherman Street Boat Ramp by no later than 11 am.  This is to ensure everyone has time to get their gear together for an on time launch at noon.

As with standard Mountaineers Sea Kayak trips, participants need to make their own arrangements for boats, gear, food, and water.
