6 Hours Full-Day Shotgun Cove Shipwreck
On this tour, you’ll leave directly from Whittier at 10 am, pedaling five miles each way during a 6-hour exploration of Passage Canal,
the Kittiwake Rookery, and a historic shipwreck in Shotgun Cove. After checking out the impressive rookery and waterfall, you’ll head east nearly to Poe Bay and then cross into Shotgun Cove. This is where the Leschi, a steam sidewheeler built in 1913, washed up in 1978. You’ll land on the beach, learn more about the Leschi, and have a tasty lunch. Later, explore more of Shotgun Cove, a mooring buoy that typically hosts seals, and then cruise back along the shoreline to Whittier, watching for more wildlife along the way.
