We will put-in at Thompson' Bait Camp (may be a parking fee), paddle around Tri-City Beach Point, to the boat ramp at Bay Ridge Dr, have lunch, & paddle back. You will need to be able to paddle at least 10 miles and handle you boat in slighly windy, choppy conditions. You will be up to a mile from shore during the round trip paddle.
Directions --Enter Thompson's Bait Camp in your personal Navigation Device.
Hazards -- Weather conditions. The water will be cold. Dress appropriately, as in no-cotton. Water rescues, if required will be attempted if necessary, but we will quickly take swimmers to the beach if necessary. We will not be crossing the Intracoastal Waterway, but there could be some boat traffic in the area. Oyster Reefs - These are both above and below the water. Submerged reefs can usually be seen as a darker area. The boat ramp may be slippery.
