Trip out from Kylesku with North Coast Sea Trips on the Intrpid. Landed in sheltered areaat NC 0979 3454. Nice grazed island. Did the tump first.jonglew24/05/2019
Waded through water at around 1h 20 mins before low tide. Low tide for today was -0.02m. Crossed at NC 09849 33581. Note that there is the equivalent of a river channel that is about 1.5m wide. Whilst I was crossing a fish farm boat sailed past me!!! Water was about 80cm deep when I crossed. Nipped up to summit over the Tump then came straight back to crossing area. Tide had drained and had a dry crossing about 20mins after low tide and could see the sea creeping back in. Nice views from top of island :-)assynt_bob22/03/2019
