Paddling Trips - Whidbey Island, Ebey's Landing, Trip #25

One of the new trips we added to the book is Trip #25 Keystone ferry landing to the Hastie Lake boat ramp on the west side of Whidbey Island.  I've hiked sections of this trip for years, paddling it is in itself another experience.  Strong currents, tide rips, and exposed wind and surf can make this trip treacherous or fun depending on the skill level of the paddler.  Some days the same stretch can be flat as a lake.  One of my favorite stretches is by Ebey's Landing, pics below.  Amazing views up the Strait, over to Port Townsend and north to the San Juans.
