We will unload the kayaks from Kayak Academy and plan to be on the water by 9:30 am and will be off the water by 3:00 pm.

Bring water, snack, lunch and sunscreen. Carpool if you can because parking can be tight. There is a rest room at the launch site.

The paddle starts at Boston Harbor , heads west across Budd Inlet and Eld Inlet and then  north up Squaxin Passage to Hope Island. After circling Hope Island, we stop for lunch at Hope Island. This will be one of the lowest tides of the year.
