A pleasant and interesting paddle route can be enjoyed by launching at Port La Tour Wharf and exploring around Johns Island and on up through the haulover and into Negro Harbour. Once here you can be picked up by the Blanche Road bridge, or paddle on up to Port Clyde to the public access at Strangs Lane. This trip provides a very scenic paddle with a variety of options. This route can be very easily made into an all day outing.
