|Paddling Dewatto River|
A winding creek with multiple channels empties into the bay and is a great spot to explore. Several homes on stilts and some only accessed by the water or walking in align the shorelines north and south of the bay.
Rent a SUP or kayak for Union Paddle & Row (Hood Canal Marina) or hire Captain Lee Geist take you there with your paddle gear. His boat is moored at Alderbrook Resort in Summer and is available for private trips on the Canal. He also offers SUP tours of the bay.
