Launch from Owen's Beach in Tacoma and paddle on the waning ebb current to Burton, Vashon Island.
http://www.vashonpark... This trip involves a 1 mile open water crossing from Pt. Defiance to the south end of Vashon Island. We will then paddle past the Ferry Dock at Tahlequah into Quartermaster Harbor,
http://www.dockton.co... and arrive at Docton. This is about an 8 mile trip total one way. We are only going to paddle one way!!! :-) I plan to drop off my kayak at Owen's Beach and drive to Docton before hand. I plan to ride my bicycle back across the ferry to Owen's Beach and meet up with everyone for the paddle. That way we will have my van to take everyone back across the ferry to Pt. Defiance for our return trip home, for FREE! I can accomodate a maximum of 6 kayaks on my van. More is possible if anyone else wants to do the shuttle - bike ride with me. The benefit to this is that we all get to go to the Quartermaster Inn for post paddle Nosh n' Brew!
