Kayaking Puget Sound, the San Juans, & Gulf Islands

This loop around Harbor Island is a nice place to kayak. The eTrail lists the access points around the island and further up the Duwamish Waterway. Because a loop around the island does not take that long, you may want to venture up the river or out into Elliott Bay. The eTrail map shows the entire area. We did not encounter many moving ships while we paddled there, but if you enjoy the company of ships, there are many docked along this route. Be sure to check the weather and tides before you go since this trip is affected by both. I’d recommend this loop to any Seattlite who sea kayaks. It’s an industrial experience.
