Great half day 4-mile paddle from Bowman Bay to Deception Island and via the Deception Pass Underwater Park. Lots of sea and bird life to see, and fun exploring Deception Island with spectacular views on all sides. Full video with aerials now available in 4K UHD on YouTube.

Overall a great trip, highly recommended if you haven't done it yet. Great for beginners through advanced paddlers. There is also Deception Pass if you are advanced and want to get some whitewater :cool: We did this as a half day trip, but you could also do this as a full day as there is so much to see.
