Required Equipment

Required Equipment

All equipment for a kayak day trip on open water including dressing for immersion.  I'd suggest, but won't mandate, a dry-suit.  If you choose a wet suit please be advised that the water in Flowing Lake in late March is usually colder than the Puget Sound and you will be in that water quite a bit.
