We will play in the ebb in Canoe pass, and likely peek into Deception Pass as well.
This is an ‘intermediate friendly‘ paddle meaning of you have solid intermediate sea kayak skills, but maybe don‘t have a roll, and have never paddled in currents like these this is for you!
I also welcome anyone that IS experienced and wants to come play.
I will be camping at Deception Pass and if this is a long drive I highly recommend this. If you do please let me know and we can share a campfire!
Launching from Bowman Bay, you will need a Discover Pass.
Peak current will be 5.5 knots at 11:47am so launching at 8:30 gives us lots of time to see the current build and then slack off again.

Bring a lunch, emergency paddling kit and spare clothes. Although only a half hour paddle from Bowman Bay, it is surprisingly inaccessible if something should happen.

Helmets and drysuits required.
