San Juan Islands > Lopez Island > Spencer Spit to Frost and Flower Islands in 4K with Aerials 8 Sep 2022

May 30, 2021
Sammamish, WA
Beautiful Spencer Spit on the northeast side of Lopez Island in the heart of the San Juan Islands. Our kayak day-trip started at the launch point on the south side of Spencer Spit, went out to Frost Island, and over to Flower Island. I hiked up Flower Island to take in the panoramic view of the San Juan Islands, and do an aerial recon of Leo Reef to the north. I returned paddling around the east side of Frost Island, and back to Spencer Spit. Video: How to Kayak Lopez Island - Beautiful Spencer Spit, Frost Island, Flower Island 4K with Aerials.
