Afterwork paddle through the Ballard Locks. We will launch at the boat ramp at the end of 14th Avenue (Just south of the Trader Joes) and paddle through the locks to West Point Lighthouse. We will return to the launch around 930pm (Please ensure that you bring a head lamp or deck light as our return will be in the dark).

I have heard rumours that the bioluminescence is present in Shilshole Bay, so we will have a small picnic on the beach at West Point and head back once the sun sets. This will be a leisurely paddle to enjoy the last days of summer and the amazing sunset. Bring something to share (i.e. chips, salsa, cheese, crackers, beverages)

Please be on time. We will launch at 615 pm.

What to bring:

Kayak, spray skirt, paddles, safety gear, PFD, dry suit/wet suit.

Hat, sun glasses

Water, Snacks

Deck Light or Head Lamp
