Kayak Northwest
Northwest Kayak Information Center

The Northwest is a fantastic place to live.  My friends and I enjoy kayaking the waters of Puget Sound and the other great waters in our region.  This joy has inspired me to build this web site so that I can share the places that my friends and I have paddled.  Every route shown here has been paddled by us. 

I hope that this web site can become a resource for other paddlers to use in exploring the Northwest.

Amazing it’s 2019!!!  Hopefully much better than 2018!  Sadly, I did not manage to get in a single day of paddling last year.  I managed to aggravate an old shoulder injury in the fall of 2017 to the point where I ended having shoulder surgery in May of last year.  The doctor said it would be 9-12 months to fully heal and no matter how hard I tried that turned out to be true.  I finally feel good enough to not only paddle, the fun part, but also carry and load my kayak, the less fun parts…but necessary tasks. 

The year off has given me lot’s of time to think about kayaking and what I wanted to do in the future.  I still love the sport and need to get myself motivated again.  We have a river trip in work for May of this year but nothing before or after.  Time to get planning…. Time to get some motivation!

I am working on the web site when I have time and I am striving to make this as complete a kayak guide for Puget Sound as possible.  If you have suggestions for improving any of my web pages you can contact me via E-Mail.
