Sea Kayak - Tacoma Narrows


Sea Kayak - Tacoma Narrows

Good intro to first timers on fast currents. If water levels don’t permit from Chambers Creek we will launch from Steilacoom and ride the bottom of the 4.7 ebb to the famous Narrows Bridge before takeout at Titlow Beach. Lunch at Steamer’s before completing the shuttle back. Immersion wear required, drysuit preferred and you must bring your own boat.
