We are also at the mercy of the tides. I haven’t counted how many rapids we must transit on our way up, but each one must be dealt with in a particular way to keep boat and crew safe. There will be times when the only thing we can do is sit tight and wait for the tide to change.
Because of that timing and the long run, I think we’ll stop somewhere just before the narrows, most likely Boat Harbor. After a nights rest we can head for the pass without being in a rush.
