Paddle Description

Paddle Description

Nestled between the mills near Everett is the solitary Jetty Island. The island offers guaranteed solitude during the winter months and plenty of opportunities to stop along the way. During windy days, paddlers can expect to encounter large wind waves as well as a possible tide rip where the Snohomish River meets the northern tip of the island. Kayakers circumnavigating the island can expect to see a variety of birds, seals, and even sea lions. From the public boat launch near Everett Marina, kayakers can circumnavigate the island either way depending on the currents from the Snohomish River. The 4-mile trip around the island should be done during high tide because of the large tidal flats that appear during lower tides.
