. With that said, watch for poison oak. Old pit toilet on trail toward south end, bring your own supplies. Very shallow on east side, very open little protection in any wind
, but this time of year probably not a problem. North end best approach with dinghy
, sandy, nice beach. South of island is dive park, careful of divers.
Fyi: Cutts island used to be known as Deadman Is, may show on some charts
North end of Henderson bay: low power
lines at entrance to Burley lagoon
. You can't get under bridge so just stay away. Used to be marked with buoys but not currently.
No services, fuel
,water, ice on Carr inlet, Henderson bay with the exception of Lakebay marina resort [http://www.lakebaymarina.com]
. Watch your depth
here, best at high tide. Also waste pump station at Penrose state park.
Assuming your coming from north of south sound, time passage
through the Tacoma Narrows, stay east on out going, current
on that tide swing will produce 6+k currents. I wait at Gig Harbor city dock
[free] or several restaurants on incoming. Don't think a Cat27 will go under fox island bridge.
If coming from south: Wycolf shoals near Pitt pass, north of McNiel island, watch your depth
, high tide only.
Almost certainly pay station on shore. Cash or paper check. Several years ago some state marine parks were free. Call wa state parks to check on current
program specialists are available to assist with questions regarding the state's boating program.
