Sea Kayak - Stretch & Reach Islands

The 4 of us rugged paddlers braved the rain and wind to paddle around Stretch and then Reach Island.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • No issues with driving from Olympia but the paddler from Seattle ran into traffic delays.

We saw Bald Eagles, seals, a sea lion, cormorants, scooters and huge schools of small fish. The trip took 3 hours without lunch and we went 7.3 NM. We had heavy rain most of the time, the wind picked up in the afternoon. We found there is no good lunch spot in the rain and wind. Parking was okay and there is a port a potty accross the street from Fair Harbor.
