Mercer Island


Sea Kayak - Mercer Island

Paddle around Mercer Island. Enjoy the fall foliage, or lack thereof, and, hopefully, not too many speed boats. Go home shopping.

  • Sea Kayak II
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 12.0 nm
  • Maximum Wind: 10 kts
  • Maximum Waves: 1 ft

We'll meet at Enatai Beach Park (Coordinates  47.579142, -122.196836) at 8:00 am.  Launch, say, around 9 am.

Besides the Sea Kayak and Mountaineer essentials, please ensure you adequate clothing, food, and water for the day.  Should be back by 2 pm.  We'll stop 2, maybe 3 times, depending on group needs.  

Please have a face mask that can be easily donned if near someone e.g. when moving gear to or from a vehicle or during a break.  No need to wear it while paddling since we'll be social distancing.  

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns:  206-850-3993.
