Here's a few suggestions of cool places to paddle if you're seeking a challenging distance or water conditions...
- Squaxin Island (South Sound) - undeveloped and owned by the Squaxin Tribe. You can't land there but it's undeveloped shores is probably how Wilkes of Vancouver saw the Sound for the first time.
|Marrowstone & Indian Islands|
|Squaxin Island, south side.|
Determine distances using Google Maps, marine charts or if you can find them, the SeaTrails maps (we think this company has closed).
Prone Paddling: Using a long narrow surf ski like surfboard powered by hand paddling on knees or chest.
- Vashon Island
- Harstene Island
- Anderson Island
- Pender Island
- Saturna Island
- Wallace Island
