Paddling to Stuart Island is among the “wildest” of the San Juan Island trips for two reasons: this destination is in a rarely experienced natural state, and the tidal forces are some of the strongest. This is no place for novices. You are likely to generate some excitement just paddling to and from Stuart Island, but its shorelines, two park areas, and Cascadia Marine Trail tent sites are sure to make the visit a pleasure.
