Paddle Kitsap

The fist leg of our journey is about 5.5 miles and should take about 2 hours; we will make our way across Port Madison and into Agate Passage to ride the incoming tide on our way to our rest stop in Keyport where we will hop out of the boats to stretch, use the facility and snag some goodies from the Keyport Mercantile. After we have had time to recharge in Keyport we hit the water for the final 2.5 miles into Poulsbo. We will still have the current pushing us and expect the last leg to take about an hour.
