|Description||Three days of kayaking and hiking in and around Carrington Bay.
We will take the first ferry to Cortes, drive to Seavista to launch our kayaks with our camping equipment. Kayaks have to be carried down to the beach, leaving our cars at the top parking area. We will paddle through Plunger Passage, Coulter Bay, into the Sutil Channel and onto Carrington Bay. This is interesting and can be a challenging paddle. On arrival at Carrington Bay we will set-up our tents near the lagoon entrance, a narrow channel through which the tide flows, mixing salt & fresh water. This is indeed a lovely camping area with many sunny spots & the lagoon for swimming.
