Duwamish Waterway

Many people might equate this trip to entering the “Heart of Darkness” to extract Kurtz from the Inner Station. However, traveling slowly by kayak you can really wrap your mind around what used to be, how it was destroyed, and some really positive attempts at recovery. Maybe not on the first trip, but eventually you can see that Seattle has a bustling seaport - with a conscience. Paddling 12 nm from Elliott Bay to South Park and return on the Duwamish Waterway, you'll see container ships, tug boats, bridges, osprey & swallows.
