The slipway can get slippery, so watch your step! Also be careful launching and landing at the end of the slip. (More info at Two Tree Island.) Especially near the launch and a little way down the Ray, the water can get very shallow on the shoals. Stay left after going round the first (right hand) corner. Then stay right (near the marker buoys) a little way down the Ray (c. 500m after the left hand turn) as there’s a big shallow shoal mid-channel. Not suitable for strong or building westerly winds. Exposed to crosswinds (north or southerly). At Seal Point, respect the wildlife and don’t paddle too close to seals on the banks, especially if they have pups. Strong tides, so stick to slack water (within an hour of low tide) whenever possible.
