Description: A gentle paddle to explore this stunning area, with the option of going South to Rapid Head depending on the group capabilities, interest and weather

Bring sufficient food & hydration for snacks & lunch.

Please ensure you bring any relevant safety gear including your helmet (I have one spare if required - let me know).

Tow rope, pump, first aid kit/ personal medication, PLB, VHF radio

Distance: Wirrina to Rapid Bay is only 6km so unless we decide to go South of Rapid Head this is really about exploring this rocky stretch of coastline. We can start heading North towards Normanville to add a few more km's. Allow 5 hours duration, bring water and lunch.
