The Ovens Tour

Departing from Hadley Point this tour has lovely scenery and a good chance to see wild life with an eagle nest on the route.  The most sheltered trip we can offer this trip crosses Salsbury Cove and visits Sand Point home of the Ovens a collection of caves and arches.  A stop to explore the beach is included.  This is a really excellent trip for young kids or the very nervous.

Here you can see the course of one of our Ovens Tours.  We paddled about 5 nautical miles(5.75 miles).  We paddled at a relaxed pace and made a couple of stops under mostly clear skies and calm seas.  The Google Earth image shows an approximation of areas that are possible to explore in a half day tour.  Weather and group abilities will determine that actual course that your group travel.  If you have a specific goal in mind let us know and we will try to make it happen.
