Otter Island


August 18, 2018

We will paddle up Ebey Slough from Marysville to Otter Island on the incoming tide and return on the ebb current. We will explore a channel which leads into the interior of Otter Island, a rare unspoiled relic of the Snohomish delta country before the settlers began rearranging things. Round trip is about 10 n.m. , with a possible side trip into Qwuloolt Estuary.

We will be on protected water with favorable to negligible currents.

Trip Rating: II-B due to the lack of landing places and facilities on the route.

Appropriate immersion gear required. Contact Don Erickson.
