This is a moderate pace paddle from Washington Park to Friday Harbor via Cattle Pass.

Wheels will be required and should be able to be stowed INSIDE the kayak. Helmets are also required as there will be opportunity to rock garden along the way. 

We will be launching at 7am sharp from Washington Harbor, please allow some extra time for packing your boat as there will  be a car shuttle to be able to leave some cars at the ferry landing. We will be returning from Friday Harbor after the paddle on the 3:45 or 6:30 pm Ferry.

Bring plenty of water as hydration will be a necessity on this trip.  Also bring snacks and lunch, and money for the ferry and parking (Washington Park and/or the ferry lot).
