With access to ocean, estuary, river and lakes our region offers many options for paddlers with their own equipment.
Paddling in the ocean
Knowledge of local swell, sea, wind, prevailing conditions and sound judgment is necessary for safe experiences in this area. Paddlers attempting these waters need to be experienced and able to read ocean dynamics in a setting of multiple headlands, overhangs offshore stacks and reef platforms.
Paddling lakes, rivers and estuaries
For recreational paddlers, the volcanic lakes and estuaries generally provide more protected and predictable waters with plenty of opportunities to explore.
