Myponga Beach to Carrickalinga Point Sunday — 3 Dec 2023

Perfecrt Day for a Paddle

Perfect weather, a beautiful place to paddle, great company and dolphins; could you ask for more?

Mark, Berny, Marius and Terry joined Anne and Simon at Myponga Beach to paddle south along the coast towards Carrickalinga. With almost zero swell and beautifully clear water we had fun playing in the rock gardens and visiting a couple of caves along the way. Some rocks were ‘touched’ and one Mark found himself stuck on until the next swell lifted him off, but all that just added to the fun of the paddle.

After practicing a few rolls we landed on the little beach below Carrickalinga Point for lunch. On our return paddle we spotted a large pod of dolphins that seemed to be in a feeding frenzy, circling around and coming to the surface often.

The tide had dropped significantly by the time we landed back at Myponga Beach so there was a longer carry getting the kayaks back to the cars. Rinsed off, changed and packed up, we headed to the Myponga Bakery for a well-earned afternoon coffee.
