Join the Ride the Tide Rendezvous to celebrate the Kitsap Peninsula National Water Trails. You may join the guided ride using your own gear or sign-up to rent gear from Olympic Outdoor Center. We are calling all paddlers and friends of the water trail, join us this year to paddle and play as we celebrate the National Water Trail designation.

In June 2014, the Kitsap Peninsula Water Trail was designated a National Water Trail by the National Park Service, one of only a handful in the country. Our 371 mile trail encompasses all of the Kitsap Peninsula and is one of the most spectacular paddling destinations in the world. Come out and join us as we celebrate the wonderful, majestic and diverse natural resources the peninsula has to offer.

The Ride the Tide paddle is about six miles and will take 2-3 hours to complete. Starting at the Tracyton Boat Ramp, we will paddle through the Port Washington Narrows with the current and finish at the boat ramp in Port Orchard.
