Tacoma offers a surprisingly interesting kayaking
route from downtown Tacoma and out into Commencement Bay. The shoreline wraps
around Tacoma, taking a paddler from marinas and condos, out to massive freighters
and docks, on to small waterside pocket parks, by old hillside neighborhoods fronted
by restaurants on piers, and then ending at huge forested Port Defiance Park.
