Sand Island Excursion


Sand Island Excursion!


Explore the sea caves of Sand Island


Make the 3 mile crossing from beautiful Little Sand Bay over to Sand Island. This island has some wonderful and deep sea caves! Have lunch in Justice Bay.  Enjoy a hike to the historic lighthouse.


This day trip is dependent on conditions. Also, participants should have at least some experience sea kayaking.  Or, schedule this as a second sea cave day trip. Do the mainland sea caves on your first day to get some paddling reflexes & then be ready to paddle to Sand Island on your second day.


Cost is $150 per person.

For 2 day trips, e.g. Mainland caves & Sand Island, total cost = $250 each.

Trip includes guides, gear and lunch.

Typically we will wear wetsuits so bring shorts, tights or a swimsuit to wear underneath them.
