Was outfitted by Most High Adventure Outfitters. They erected a camp (tent, lantern, cooler with ice, water, firewood, table, chairs) for us before we got there, and then dropped us in the water with kayaks they provided and our sleeping bags, toilet paper and food.


The outfitter covered the $5 permit.

The cost of the supported trip with kayak and camp was $75/person.
