KAYAK

HIKE TO Khao Kaya Sira Bay at the North end of the island. From the resort it will take around 30 minutes. You need to find your way down off the main road through some lanes and a temple to pick up the new road along the N.E. coast of the island, passing some new buildings and over a steep hill. The last part you leave the road and take a rough path through the trees to get to the beach. There are some bits of rope tied to the barrier marking the top of the path.

THE CHALLENGE.

Your group has to make a journey by kayak east around the headland to the bay beyond. You have to get as far as you can in 40 minutes, but you must keep together. Think about how to organise people into kayaks to do this. Your points score will depend on group cohesion as well as distance covered with significant penalties for separation of the two kayaks. This activity is not equal for all participants so there should be plenty of encouragement and little or no criticism.

SAFETY GUIDELINES

  1. LIFEJACKETS MUST BE WORN IN THE KAYAKS OR IN THE WATER

  2. RAZOR SHARP OYSTER SHELLS AND SPINY SEA URCHINS MEANS THAT SHOES MUST BE WORN IN THE WATER

  3. USE SUNSCREEN AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

  4. AN INFLATABLE KAYAK IS BASICALLY A BIG FUNNY SHAPED BALLOON. SO DON'T POP IT! KEEP IT WELL AWAY FROM THE SHARP SHELLS AND ROCKS, ESPECIALLY WHEN LANDING.
