Skagit River: Rockport to La Conner


Sea Kayak - Skagit River: Spudhouse to La Conner

Paddle from Spudhouse DFW boat launch to Pioneer Park in La Conner.

  • Class I River
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 10.0 mi
  • Maximum Wind: 15 kts
  • Maximum Waves: 1 ft
  • Pace: 2.5 mph

Meet Deception Pass Campground at 8am. We're to drive to the launch  as a group as we must leave at least one car in La Conner. Goal is to be on the water by 10am. Final launch decision will be based on weather and river stage.

I will have driving directions at our Saturday meeting.

Dress for the weather and the swim. Bring lunch and drinks.

I have not paddled this route before. Therefore, I am going to be extra cautious about conditions.
