Tacoma Narrows

Currents aren’t the fastest but the timing is for a fun run to a hot meal at The Tides and back again, looking for wildlife and possibly the last of the fall colors along the way.

  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 12.0 nm
  • Maximum Wind: 15 kts
  • Maximum Waves: 3.0 ft
  • Maximum Currents: 3 kts

Opposing wind and current can make things lumpy especially under the bridge so good bracing skills are required.
