Strait of Juan de Fuca North Shore

Strait of Juan de Fuca (North Shore) Professional Review and Guide

"The North Shore of the Olympic Peninsula has become a mecca for sea kayakers. When the wind is still, the fog has lifted, and the sun is out, paddling the protected waters along the Strait of Juan de Fuca can be exhilarating.

Canoe and kayak shops and liveries have sprung up in Port Townsend, Sequim, Port Angeles, and other towns along the North Shore to serve a growing cadre of paddlers. More than a dozen boat ramps and accesses lie along the shoreline. Paddlers may observe sea mammals and birds, explore tide pools and the mouths of rivers flowing into the Straits; they can beachcomb, picnic, and camp."
