Seawolf Park, 100 Seawolf Park Blvd, Galveston, TX 77550
Launch from inside Seawolf Park. An advanced trip for those wanting a more authentic sea kayaking experience and a challenge, paddling open water in Texas winter conditions and potentially a windy day.
Circumnavigation of Pelican Island and spoil island north of Pelican Island, approximately 12-13 miles. This may be a potentially challenging paddle in semi-open or open waters. Air and water temperatures are likely to be cold, and wind/wave/swell conditions could reach L3/L4 description. Winds up to 15 knots and waves or swells less than 3 feet and distance in excess of 10 miles.
Therefore, participants should have a reliable self-recovery technique as well as training in assisting others in rescue situations, and sound sea kayaks with deck lines all round and buoyancy fore and aft.
A working roll would be great.
Paddlers should have spray skirts on and, ideally, wear a dry suit or at least a wet/neoprene top.
Boat traffic, and the crossing of boat lanes are extra hazards.
