Lopez Island's South Shore Professional Review and Guide

"Rocky shorelines, numerous bays, and abundant wildlife on the wild south shore of Lopez Island. The south shore of Lopez is a paradise for paddlers, with quiet harbors, dramatic cliffs, abundant wildlife, the chance to spot whales in season, and islands and rocks to explore—all without the crowds you’ll find in many other kayaking spots. While launching areas are limited, you’ll have plenty of options for exploring once you’re in the water.

While launching areas are limited, you’ll have plenty of options for exploring once you’re in the water. Guided trips are available in the area as well. MacKaye Harbor makes for the best launch spot on the south side of the island, where you’ll find a concrete boat ramp and parking."
