  Sailing on the Sound
by AgentJX

Tacoma is blessed by an abundance of water, and there are plenty of places to take advantage of that water. Rent a sailboat or sea kayak, or take a dinner cruise or sailboat cruise, just be sure to get out on the water. Commencement Bay is home to Tacoma’s port, but as you leave the main port area there are much nice areas of the bay. Where the bay meets the gulf is called Point Defiance. Here you can rent kayaks and enjoy the water at Owen Beach.
