We will depart from Half Island Cove beach hugging the shore as we transition from gradual sloped coast to steep towering cliffs. With all the wonders and surprises on land, don't forget to take a look below. On a calm day, you will see a canvas of colour and life through the transparent sea. We will continue along the pristine seaside full of flawless & deserted pebble beaches (included the widely known Fogherty's Cove). With plenty of temptatious shore, we will likely all welcome a quick stop to stretch the legs, sip a cup of tea & comb the beach for treasure. Back in the boats we will continue to weave our way along the shore before beginning the short crossing over to Fox Island. There, we will locate the ideal spot to beach our boats. While your guide(s) sets up for lunch, you are welcome to explore the island! After everyone is fed and has had time to scout/swim/snorkel/relax, we will hop back in our kayaks. Time and group permitting, we can circumnavigate Fox Island prior to crossing back over to main land where we will reach our take-out. A vehicle will be there ready to take us back to Half Island Cove.
