Lions Park (Bremerton) boat ramp at 1800

Lions Park is on the East side of Port Washington Narrows and  is at 251 Lebo Blvd, Bremerton, WA 98310.  The boat ramp is at the North end of the park.

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