The starting point for this cache is N 48° 24.986' W 122° 39.048' at the Bowman Bay boat launch.
This cache has an increased level of dificulity for 2 reasons. First, you have to scramble down a small cliff. Second, you should attempt this cache around low tide or else you will have to go wadding in water of varying depth. I will be adding pictures showing the cliff and the reason to check on the tide once this cache is listed.
The cache is in a rubbermaid container wrapped in a dark trash bag. Go to http://co-ops.nos.noaa.gov/tides/DECEPTIN.html to check for tide times. The hike is between 3/4 and 1 mile one-way depending on the route you take.
Washington State Parks have begun charging a $5 per vehicle day use fee at State Parks. If you choose to approach this cache from the Bowman Bay parking lot be prepared to pay this fee. You may also reach this cache from a pullout on SR20 approximately 200 yards north of the Deception Pass Bridge (N48 24.763 W122 38.942). The pullout is on the west side of the road. There is room for 3 or 4 vehicles here, and there is a break in the guardrail where a maintained trail begins.
