An exposed paddle across a channel with strong currents to waterfront camps and scenic hikes on an island where the San Juans’ alternative, rural lifestyle still thrives. The trip from San Juan Island to Stuart Island is one of the classic overnight paddle trips in the San Juans, crossing the lively and challenging currents of Spieden Channel to the quiet harbors of Stuart Island. While it’s possible to do the trip in a day, you’ll miss out on the wonders of exploring peaceful Stuart Island, a place that feels like it’s just a few notches back in time. There’s also the unforgettable experience of catching the sunset from high above the water at Turn Point on the island’s western end.
