This is an expedition trip for fit, adventurous kayakers only. The journey covers over 230km of waterways and camping is on remote platforms in wilderness locations. The itinerary has to be kept flexible due to tides, wind and weather conditions so this trip would suit lovers of the outdoors who enjoy the challenges of travelling in remote areas and who are not fazed by rough weather and changes in itinerary. You should also be comfortable around water, be able to swim and have some experience of kayaking, preferably in remote areas. We reserve the right to alter or cancel all or part of the itinerary if the wind velocity is too strong causing the trip to be unsafe.
