9:30 AM at Fair Harbor

This is a fun trip to circumnavigate these two small islands in Case Inlet. Usually one launches from Fair Harbor and does a figure 8 paddle around the islands and back to Fair Harbor. There can be wind waves on the outer side of the islands and one doesn't want to plan this during a low tide as Stretch temporarily becomes a peninsula!
