I like the idea of a bird watching river estuary paddle. Doing an "easy-money-see-the-eagles" sea kayak paddle down the Skykomish in January might be fun. Paddling down the Samamish Slough would be different. Eagle Harbor to Blakely rock, anyone?
Orcas Island's North Beach to Sucia Island is great. Paddling Port Madison on Bainbridge, the back bay at Port Ludlow, gunk holing at Mats Mats, or riding the "magic carpet" current from Shelton to Hope Island and back, work well. It all works well!
I was intermediate a long time ago. Now, it is not clear what I am. I guess "beginner" with 10,000 paddle strokes may best sum it up.
I have paddled many interesting places in the US and Canadian San Juans ... also ... Kyuquot Sound to the Bunsby Islands and the "Broken Islands" of Barkley Sound, all on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. It is all good. Let's do some more!!!
Long ago, in a galaxy far away, I went through a wonderful and serious sea kayaking phase. I have recently got back into sea kayaking and am looking for opportunities to have great adventures with sympatico people. I will see you on the water!
This is a very good group.
