Kayaking Bermuda – Day 1

Time to get the ‘ol kayaks back into the water! We haven’t paddled since the Bahamas and the clear waters of Bermuda were quite inviting.

Through St. George’s Channel we have a nice view of the Town Cut entrance channel, as we paddled around Paget Island and into the open ocean.

Too choppy to kayak in the ocean…we turned back after a nice view of St. David’s Head.

On Paget Island we found a secluded patch of mangroves. The island is actually used for an Outward Bound program and boaters are not permitted to land.

We circumnavigated Smith’s Island and Hen Island on our way back to the boat. Hen Island is used for scout programs; they presently have camp set up and from Rode Trip we’ve been watching boys diving, swimming, canoeing, and sailing.
