A moderate paddle down the rocky, forested west side of Orcas Island to a popular state marine park and through a handful of small scenic islands. This trip from West Beach makes a scenic full-day paddle that will take you to both the rugged western side of Orcas Island and to the beautiful Wasp Islands.
On the way you’ll pass Jones Island State Marine Park, one of the most popular island parks in the San Juans, and a worthwhile diversion on its own for both kayakers and other boaters.
