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.
