A group of seven sea kayakers made the trip from Yiti to Bandar Kharan. We started by leaving the boats and gear at Yiti before dropping the ‘finish’ cars at BK. On the water by 8.30, paddling out of Yiti Inlet we headed east along the coast. Five kilometres later, Yanket Inlet provided a welcome break from a northerly wind blowing force 2 to 3. Three kilometres later and two hours after departing Yiti, we entered Bandar Kharan.
The total distance was 14km and dolphins and turtles were seen along the way. The group experienced some challenging conditions along the coast that was finally rewarded with a super swimming stop on a sandy beach in BK. Afterwards, we explored through the islands and finally headed back to the vehicles at noon when the temperature started ramping up. Spectacular scenery and good fun, although it was rather warm.
This trip was planned for experienced and capable kayakers and should not be attempted by inexperienced paddlers.
