Capers Island is a spectacular Lowcountry kayak destination! The Charleston Sea Kayaking Meetup Group hasn't been there in years -- but will be heading out this Saturday! Will YOU join us?
Here's the plan:
11:00 am - Meet at Sea Kayak Carolina, consolidate vehicles, and head off to Garris Landing.*
12:30 pm - Approximate time of launch at Garris Landing -- perhaps a little sooner if on schedule.
2:30 pm- Approximate time of low tide. (-1.1', one of the lowest tides of the year. What treasures will we find on Capers Island?)
3:30 pm - Approximate time of arrival back at Garris Landing.
*Garris Landing was formerly, and sometimes still, known as Moores Landing. You can meet the Pod at Garris Landing as an alternative.

This trip is in relatively protected waters, only waves are from passing boats in the Intracoastal Waterway. It is about 4.25 nautical miles one way -- typically with a group of kayakers (in boats of about 14' in length or greater) it is a steady 1 1/2 hours of paddling one way.
This is a meetup trip. All kayakers are paddling at thier own risk. Lifejackets must be worn, properly fitted and zipped up. Proper dress required -- no cotton! Free to paddle with your own sea kayak (equipped with skirt) and equipment. Sea kayaks may be rented in advance at Sea Kayak Carolina for only $30. Please call[masked] in advance if you wish to reserve a rental kayak.
