Port Ludlow

Published by at 10:27 pm under Cruising,Liveaboard Topics

Port Ludlow is a easy 3-4 hour trip (sailboat speed) from Shilshole.  Catch the outgoing tide north and cross the traffic lanes fairly perpendicular (as you should always do) to run up the Kitsap side.  Round Pt. No Point and head to Foulweather Bluff where you should arrive at slack water to avoid the major tide rips that occur near the bluff and buoy.  From there, its a 3.5 mile trip across the Hood Canal entrance to Pt Ludlow (stay clear of the Tala Point as it is shallow, rock strewn and full of kelp).  The harbor is large with easy anchorage in 25-35 ft of mud bottom.  (avoid the cable crossing area).  There is a dinghy dock at the marina for you to go and explore.  See more here
