Be constantly aware of the tides and weather especially around the headlands such as Cape Forchu.

This access gives the paddler a chance to explore around this side of Yarmouth Harbour, in the coves and inlets, keeping in mind the wharf at Yarmouth Bar is a very busy one and this area cannot be paddled at low tide. Always keep in mind the tide and weather, at present there is no public ferry coming into Yarmouth to connect with the United States.
