When my wife and I retire, paddling off season would be our dream. Till then, we will contend with the rest of us tourists.The wind can rip thru Lewis Channel and change sea conditions in a hurry from both N. and S. From the N. it can really trash Teakerne inlet. As usual, Respect the Weather and the Sea. Great area, hope it is not too crowded for your visit now that the season is on. We do our Redonda trips always in the off/shoulder season. Our last one was 3 weeks ago, we had all our camp spots to ourselves again.
Thank you for your insights and time.
