Slow Boat Farm (Puget Island) to Skamokawa
$99, full-day tour
Slow Boat Farm is located on Puget Island just over the bridge from the town of Cathlamet. Owned and operated by kayak guides, it offers camping and a sweet launch into a gentle slough.
This tour starts out in the scenic passageways of Puget Island, from Slow Boat Farm. Camp at Slow Boat Farm under the moon or choose from local lodging options.
This 10-mile downriver run moves with the current from Puget Island past the basalt cliffs of Cathlamet's Lower Gorge to the cottonwood forest of Hunting Island, transitioning to the sitka spruce swamp of Price Island, and ending at Skamokawa's historic steamboat landing. This route gives opportunity to play with currents and eddylines along the cliffs. Train the eye as well to read the landscape and the river and find our way past the islands.
