Kayaking & SUP Circumnavigation of Indian & Marrowstone Islands

Trip Report from Laura Prendergast of Pygmy Kayaks

Mission accomplished! Griff and I paddled approximately 19.5 miles (according to google maps) in 6.5 hours around Marrowstone and Indian Island... a great way to spend Black Friday! No lines to buy things... just sea lions eating salmon, curious seals and porpoises surfacing.

Our route was mapped from Pygmy's HQ as I left from the Point Hudson Marina in Port Townsend. We experienced strong currents by the lighthouse on marrowstone. We followed the tide around perfectly, going clockwise with high tide at 12:30. 

The route could also be broken into a two day trip using the WWTA Kinney Point campsite on the south end of Marrowstone. www.wwta.org

We were both paddling Pygmy Murrelets 4PD: Greenland Style Touring Kayakhttp://www.pygmyboats.com/boats/murrelet-4PD-kayak-kit.html

In the book, Trip 34 & 35.
