Sucia, Patos and Matia Kayak Trip
July 18th-21st 2022
What a lovely time we had this last week on our trip out to Sucia, Patos and Matia.
We left from North Beach on Orcas Island and made the crossing to Fox Cove on Sucia which was our home for the next four days, camping on a nice little bluff overlooking the water with beautiful sunsets each night over Patos. Being a midweek paddle, we had the islands somewhat to ourselves at times.
The next morning we made the crossing to Patos and enjoyed a nice little tour of the lighthouse before completing our journey around the island and traveling back to Sucia, with a nice paddle around Sucia as well. Third day it was over to Matia!
We saw more otters, eagles and seals (with their pups!) then I’ve seen on any paddle trip in some time. The skies were clear, water calm and wind low which made for the best paddle conditions. Thanks to Steve, Jim, Deborah, Doug and Paul for the fantastic company.
