Obstruction Island Circumnavigation Map Page

Here’s the route we took around Obstruction Island (yes, I’m slow), and the map for the launch location that goes along with the Obstruction Island post.

Around the Island

Here’s the route we took around Obstruction Island, viewable on Gaia GPS (but my kayaking speed ranks in the “herd of turtles running through peanut butter” area of slowness.

You may need to zoom way in to actually see the route here as, apparently, Gaia doesn’t yet include this as an option. Or you can click here to view the map on Gaia. 

You can view the map below for the launch point.

The Launch Point:

Even if you have your own kayak, set your launch point to Orcas Island Kayaks at:

1945 Obstruction Pass Rd

Olga, WA 98279

It’s right at Lieber Haven marina and the boat launch and dock are right there.

Orcas Island Kayaks does rent kayaks you can use to visit the island, but it’s a handy pin-point to mark the spot where the boat launch and dock are to take your own boats out as well.

The address is:
