A great mix of river, estuary and ocean. There is a campsite on the western tip that is for boats only. Be careful of the water movements through the cut if venturing out to sea as it can be difficult to paddle against.

This is a great kayak trail. You can put in at the Eaton boat ramp or at Pelican Point (nice shallow water for quite a way) and paddle across to the far side of the estuary for a wander or to fish. If you want to try the cut, beware the tide direction and chop. It can get quite rough and the flow of tide is strong. Two weeks ago I mis-timed and even with my Watersnake motor on high speed and me peddling (Hobie Revo 13), the tide was pushing me back in to the channel. But for those times when you hit the tide at when it's not too difficult to handle, go to the right on the ocean side and you will most likely be surrounded by the dolphins in residence there. It's a fantastic experience as they swim with, around and under your kayak. Remember, check the tide times before tackling the cut, and wear safety gear.
