  • Sea Kayak IV
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 nm

Meet at Lowman Beach Park for a 8:30AM launch.  

There is construction around the park but it is open for launching.  Just south of the park there is a drive way with space for two cars to unload boats.  Unload there then park on nearby streets.

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

  • Wind:  to 15kt
  • Waves:  to 2ft
  • Route:  To Blake Island and around
  • Distance:  9nm
  • Pace:  3.5nm/hour

We'll paddle across the sound, circumnavigate Blake Island one way or the other, and paddle back.  We will stop at one or two places on Blake for a rest.

I typically get back to Lowman early afternoon.
