looking to finally get out to Sucia Island this year - since i had to bail on it last year. hope you can join in.
* for EXPERIENCED kayak OWNERS, not renters
*approx 2 mile crossing - 45-60 mins - planning for minimum current at specified launch times below - camp on Sucia - no reservations possible/1st come,1st served - cramming this into 2 weekend days means utilizing ALL DAY of both days so leave early/return late
sat 8/24 - leave at whatever time you need to in order to make the 6am ferry at anacortes to Orcas Island, back-up ferry at 7:25 - get to north end of Orcas and launch between 9-9:30am - get to Sucia and secure campsites - explore, camp, eat, sleep
sun 8/25 - wake up on Sucia! break camp, explore island, cross back over at 4-5:15, ferry is at 8:45 (personally, im not one for rushing and i think the 5:20 ferry is out of reach, and would probably be full anyway) - get home late obviously...
