You have to do this! We kayaked over to Brown’s Island and it was great fun. The conditions were good as the sea was very calm. Once on Brown’s Island, our guide Nick set up a mini picnic, and also accommodated gluten free requirements. Then...More
Joni was in charge of pick up, set up, cooking, leading, pack up and drop off, and did a great job. The paddle is more than an hour each way depending on the wind but it’s not too hard even into the wind. The walk...More

The water was a little choppy the day we kayaked so it took us a little longer; I'd say a little over an hour (but well worth it). We didn't find the hike difficult; I hiked it in Chacos (there is a tiny trail for most of the way). The dry bags are definitely large enough to hold your camera; we stored ours in the bags and it worked great. Have a blast!
