  Paddlin' by the "Sun Princess".

The best - perhaps the ONLY way to visit this area is to kayak. I'm not talking about a brief ride in the harbor: I'm talking about serious kayaking. A few days paddling around the islands and you'll come to know this area. Have fun!

Equipment: You should contact a guide and let him/her give the advice: always have a lifejacket on, a foghorn with you, a lot of wool/pile to wear. LEAVE ANY COTTON ITEM HOME: when it gets wet, cotton looses all its isolation properties. If freezing yourself to death is what you expect from your trip, bring plenty of T-shirts and cotton socks. If you wanna have a good time instead, pack wool, pile and polipro clothing. You can buy very good equipment on the island.
