Trip Report    

Deception Pass

Pleasant and scenic amble along the coast.

  • Sun, Oct 10, 2021
  • Deception Pass
  • Sea Kayaking
  • Successful
  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Cool cloudy in AM, Sunny in PM.   Smooth, glassy conditions.  Minimal currents.

When I originally signed up for a Deception Pass paddle, I'd envisioned wild currents (which admittedly would have been tough for me as a newby).   As such, glassy conditions allowed for exploration of some sea caves which was a highlight for me.   Don did a great job of pinch hitting for Charlie on short notice- and everyone was safe and had a good time.

Wildlife sightings included many heron, porpoise and a massive Sea Lion.     Trip departed on time and we returned with everyone paddling under their own power, which is a plus.
