Penguin & Seals Islands Paddle & BBQ- Sunday 18 December 2005 

The plan is for a morning paddle, 8 am meeting for 8.30 am on the water. Sorry for the early start, but we have to get off the water before the sea breeze picks up.   The Paddle:    Paddle to Seal Island first.  We can't land here but you can get a great view of the sea lions and hopefully the dolphins.  If the weather allows, paddle around the back of the Penguin Island and land, go for a snorkel, enjoy the beach.  If the weather is a bit rough, we'll stay on the shore side of Penguin Island, and have some time to explore the island.  Paddle back to shore and finish off with a BBQ lunch. See website for details.  Contact:    Jennifer on or 0403 502 584, or Glenn on or 0418 908 555 (prefer email) Bookings are necessary at least a week prior to the event – early bookings do assist with the planning and risk management.
