This is a beautiful paddle that can be challenging depending on conditions.  All launches and landings will be on open unprotected beach so you must have experience in surf up to 4'.  The beach for our lunch stop is slightly protected so swell is a bit lower here.  Aside from the lunch stop, there are almost no opportunities to get out of the boats, so be prepared with snacks and drinks accessible on the water.
