Re: [seakayaking-35] Anyone interested in kayak camping?

The book by Lee is the best Navigation book for Sea Kayaking available today. Puget Sound is all about winds and currents. The Sea Trails Charts for the Sound are useful for currents. The sound itself  can be a major study in hydrology. If you can find one(out of print), the Bainbridge Island Canoe Co. published a highly detailed current chart for Puget Sound. The winds are learned by reading and experience. A great book on recreational applied weather is by Jeff Renner, a local TV meteorologist. As for tide table, "Captain Jacks" tide and current table can be found at West Marine. It's one of my primary tools for trip planning.

Hey Lauren, A really good book to buy on navigation and chart reading etc. Is a book called     "SEA KAYAK NAVIGATION Simplified"By Lee Moyer      It is a great book and really easy to read full of all the info you need.  My wife and I would really love to do a kayaking camping trip unfortunately that weedend will not work for us. We have paddeled over to hope island before. It was pretty easy for the most part. We left from Boston Harbour in Olympia. The best thing to get is a tide table book at any sporting store. The best time to leave to get to hope island I think is in the morning the when the wind is not blowing so hard. Hope this helps you out

Hi,
 
I'm new to the group. I am also interested in an overnight trip but am not available that weekend. Would Jun 30-Jul 1 work for people? I have done a couple overnights but they were always planned by others as I don't have much experience with reading tides & currents charts. Is there anyone out there that teaches that kind of stuff? :)

Hi Patrick,

Yes, I'd love to do an overnighter. I do have a touring kayak and have
never gone camping with it. I'm not available for that weekend though.
I take it you have experience doing open water crossings? Scott and I
did a paddle to Blake Island this last weekend and it was great. We
just did it for a day trip although it would have been a gre at place
for an overnighter. Logistically, that was really easy and relatively
cheap.
