Orcas Island Kayaking
The more protected waters of Orcas Island offer smoother kayaking, a boon for the beginner. With more than 125 miles of shoreline, Orcas offers kayakers a wealth of opportunity.
From the North Shore you can access a number of marine state park islands, such as Sucia, Matia and Patos. Paddle around them and enjoy the shoreline or jump ashore and explore their beautiful trails.
If you have your own kayak, consider visiting the two freshwater lakes in Moran State Park: Cascade Lake (which also has some rentals) and Mountain Lake.
