Hammersley Inlet

Trip

Sea Kayak - Hammersley Inlet

We’ll launch from Jacoby’s Shorecrest County Park We’ll Paddle Northwest to Munson Pt. Then we’ll head due south to just east of Eagle Pt. Heading east out through the current building “Hammersly Express” with Shuttle. This paddle has 7nm of uninterrupted shore line which qualifies it for one of the SOUTH SOUND INLET Paddles. The current will be building to a fun 3.7kts, at Cape Horn Pt. It will be exciting to try rolls in this current and should your roll not be bomb proof, we’ll be practicing our assited rescues in this dynamic back Eddie. Once we’re tired of playing in that. We’ ll head for Hungerford Pt. for a short refreshing break. Our next destination will be Latimer's Landing. Just north of the Harstine Island Bridge.
