Lummi Island Circumnavigation
Lummi Island is one of the great circumnavigation trips. Don't be discouraged by its length, with the current ride, you can do it! At the end there is an enormous sense of accomplishment. There are many rewards along the way. Lummi island has a very remote feel, a stunning coast, and towering peak. Views are spectacular in all directions.
We will launch from Gooseberry point crossing Hale passage. We’ll paddle counterclockwise to take advantage of the ebb, then we will lunch on Lummi Rocks, one of the best viewpoints in all the San Juans. After lunch we will head down to the south end of the island to go around making one more stop at the campground. With some help of flood we will return to our land point in now time.
This trip is 19 nm but feels more like 15. Crossings are less than a mile. Fetches are very long and conditions can get choppy with a combination of wind and current, so the full circumnavigation will be weather-dependent.
Earn a Lummi sticker, and then a pint glass when you conquer the San Juan Seven Challenge.
