Sea Kayak - Tacoma Narrows


Sea Kayak - Tacoma Narrows

A paddle up through the Tacoma Narrows for lunch at The Tides and back. Parking fees will apply.

  • Sea Kayak III/IV
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 12.0 nm

We will be taking advantage of 4 knot currents for a fast and fun ride to explore Gig Harbor before having lunch at The Tides and return. Opposing wind and current could make for rough conditions especially under the bridge so good bracing skills and drysuits are required.  Bring wheels if you have them.
