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

  • Waves: 1-2 ft

We will launch on the flood and play off Pt. Defiance and Evans Pt. We are going to look for dynamic water to play in. We expect to get wet and do some swimming. Join us if it sounds like something you'd like to do. Group's preference will determine lunch location. We have a few choices and I will poll registered participants and send an email with the details.
