This is a great launch site for access to the Grant islands. Just a short paddle to many islands that are great for picnics, sight seeing, or just getting your toes in the sand. Dolphin sightings in these area are almost year round and the sunsets from these islands are picture perfect and absolutely breath taking, so be sure to ask us about a late afternoon rental. For those looking to fish, there are many great spots! Only a short distance to the Honest Johns fishing area.
