Calling all paddlers and friends of the water trail, join us this year to paddle and play as we celebrate the National Water Trail designation. The paddle, Ride the Tide will be on Saturday June 24th. Read more
In June 2014, the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail was designated a National Water Trail by the National Park Service, one of only a handful in the country. Our 371 mile trail encompasses all of the Kitsap Peninsula and is one of the most spectacular paddling destinations in the world. Come out and join us as we celebrate the wonderful, majestic and diverse natural resources the peninsula has to offer.
The Ride the Tide paddle is about six miles and will take 2-3 hours to complete. Starting at Evergreen Rotary Park in Bremerton on the Port Washington Narrows, the first mile or so is a fast ride through the narrows on the incoming tide. The remainder of the paddle, about 5 miles, takes place on Dyes Inlet. Before we reach the beach we will rendezvous with other paddlers including the family paddle, triathlon event paddlers, and other paddling enthusiasts for the procession to the beach lead by our local native american tribal canoes and the opening ceremony for the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail Festival at the Silverdale Waterfront Park.
Looking for something a bit simpler? Join us for the family paddle, an approximately two mile paddle from Silverdale Waterfront Park around the north end of the bay and back.

* We are providing bottled water and snacks but you will want to bring your own if you have allergies or specific needs.
We have single kayaks, double kayaks and stand up paddlebaords available to rent for the event. All rentals include individually fitted personal flotation device and paddle. Kayak rentals include a bilge pump and paddle float. A short lesson or refresher is also included with each rental, as well as help with fitting of all equipment. All rental equipment will be delivered to and picked up from the event by us.
For the first part of the paddle we will be riding the current through Port Washington Narrows. It will be flowing around 4-5 knots which is fast, like a river. It is important that we follow the following safety procedures which will be covered in the safety meeting. There are also the bridge abutments on the Warren Ave Bridge to be avoided. If you are uncomfortable with theses conditions then you may want to join the Family Paddle from Silverdale Waterfront Park instead.
