Safe paddle that feels very adventurous! This is a lovely scenic paddle if you get done before the sea breeze comes in (usually around lunch time). You’re protected behind the islands and you have a visual “breadcrumb” pathway to follow . The sea is beautifully clear. Great paddle for summer when the rivers and creeks are too dry to go out.
This is a unique trail for the metro area, lots of reef, islands and wildlife. Take care not to land on the islands that are protected, but you can watch the seals from just offshore. Penguin Island is wonderful lunch stop and worth an explore by foot or paddle.
12th April. A perfect paddle. We launched the kayaks on the Garden Island side of Point Peron - there is a car park which is only a short walk to the beach. Take care and be aware of the drop off; about a half meter drop down off the limestone ledge a couple of meters from the waterline. Paddling in calm, clear waters between the many islands - beautiful; ideal conditions for swimming and snorkelling. We counted twelve seals enjoying the sun on the sandy beach at Seal Island and spotted plenty of bird life on the many surrounding limestone islands.
