depends where you are taking out
needleton=long 4-6 hrs
tacoma=longer like 6-7hrs
rockwood=longest 8-10 hrs
all of this depends on flow how much you scout and how fast you paddle reguardless you are in for a really long day

It can be done in a day depending on several factors.
If you're in a kayak only group, it can definately be done in a long day.
I know it can be done in a raft in a day, but it will be one LONG day unless flows are pretty high (which they probably won't be 2nd week of June)
Having someone who knows the run will help your time immensely.
I would say minimum flow for doing it in 1 day with kayaks is around 600cfs. Start early.
