Circumnavigate Green Island
Saturday, 12 May 2012
Green Island is surrounded by banks and at high tide turtles and other sea life is common. It's a pleasant trip and will probably take about 4-5 hours including breaks.
Full DetailsWe will depart from Manly Harbour on the bay.
High tide is about 2:52 PM so it will be a late start returning late afternoon. We will aim to leave Manly about 11am and go anticlockwise crossing to the sandy spit on the north west corner of the island. We will spend up to 1.5 hours here having lunch and waiting for the tide to come in. Those who went on the training trip to can practice some of their skills and pass them on to those who did not. Beginners will have an opportunity to learn some skills. We will paddle around the east side of the island across the banks and through the mangroves returning to Manly from the north end. If the tide is too shallow, we may elect to cross to the south west tip of St Helena island.
Safety: Sea kayaking on Moreton Bay can be hazardous. If conditions are unfavourable we will kayak up Tingalpa Creek instead. We will register with the coast guard prior to departure and be in telephone contact.
