We planned to kayak on Wednesday and had reserved kayaks for four hours. We packed our lunch and sent to the park. The wind was up - the morning news had opined that the "southerlies are freshening and the anti cyclone is moving on shore". Guess to us that meant a lot of wind and high seas. The people we had seen paddeling the day before had excellent smooth paddeling - not to be for us. We decided to give it a go anyway. We were happy we had not signed up for a full day tour with a guide. The swells were huge - we paddled out of the protected bay and into the wind and waves. Within two minutes we knew it was not to be - we were going nowhere fast. We headed back into more protected waters - the swells were still impressive. Heading back closer to shore we found the entrance to a sheltered lagoon. All in all we had a 2 hr paddle. Since we returned 2 hours early they gave us a 50% refund. I thought that was pretty classy.
