The End Of Our Journey

On the water at dawn for the final leg of our journey to Jackson Bay. It was another perfect day to complete our trip. After 3 hours we kayaked onto Neils Beach to take a quick snack with our support crew. On the beach at Jackson Bay were Paul Caffyn, Kay, Belinda & Margaret who greeted us with pavlova & champagne. It was great to have their company to celebrate the completion of our circumnavigation of the South Island. It had taken us 71 paddling days to complete approximately 3,100 kms of what many consider to be the most demanding & spectacular coastline in the World. We have seen some amazing sights and are indebted to the people we have befriended along the way.
