Show up at Monroe Landing south of Oak Harbor, 500 W Scenic Heights Rd, Oak Harbor, WA, at 9am.  This should provide enough time for folks to break camp, kayak for the day, then take either the Clinton or Coupeville ferry home. 

This is part of the Paddle and Camp weekend.  We have the Deception Pass group campsite reserved and you are welcome to register to camp there on Friday and/or Saturday nights.

Covid-19 Vaccinated individuals only.

Exact route TBD after I ask around a bit.
