A group of eight kayakers made the trip from Muttrah to Yiti. We started by loading the kayaks the night before and then dropping the ‘finish’ cars at Yiti beach early in the morning, before heading to the start point at Kalbuh park and leaving the beach by 8.30am.
The total distance was about 19km, and included stops at Cemetery bay, a paddle through the marina at Bandar al Rowdha and lunch/swim stop at a beach in Qantab. After that, we headed through the famous Shangri-La archway for another stop just outside Yiti beach, finishing early afternoon.
Spectacular scenery and good fun, although it was rather warm.
