I will be staying a couple miles north of town and thought it woudld be nice to kayak to town one day. I have a lock and some cable to secure it, but is there a dock I can leave it at or should I look for something on the beach to lock it to?
Probably easy enough to take a cable and lock it to a dock --- probably should check the plan out before the kayak day. Not sure what to say about the paddle. Maybe plan to lock up an a dive shop and ask them to watch the kayak and paddle?
Pull the kayak up to the beach and then lock it to the dock post on the beach. You can leave the paddle with a bar or any well established business as long as you buy a drink or something. This will be fun but be sure to keep a sharp eye out as there is lots of boat traffic on the north side of town as well as in town. Ive seen folks do this and park on the beach at BC's and it's a great place to sit for a beverage after a long paddle.
