Casuarina Point is a GREAT place for kayaking.  Our Abaco Palms Properties have 13 kayaks right now – 4 tandem, 7 single, and 2 child size that are recommended for up to 130 pounds.  There are many small island you can kayak to – lots to see and explore.

Here are some tips on kayaking in the ocean from: www.oceankayak.com:

Ocean Kayak Paddle Tips

Ocean Kayaks are very easy to use and very forgiving. By beginning in calm water, you can quickly get the feel of the boat and paddle techniques, and practice getting in and out of the boat by yourself. A long paddle will allow for a longer stroke, while a shorter paddle will give a shorter, faster stroke. Relax your hands when paddling – you don’t need to hold a death grip! Sit with good posture, keep your torso vertical and choose a footrest position that will allow your knees to be slightly bent. For greater efficiency, use not only your arms, but your torso and shoulders as well. Start out easy until you get the feel of the paddle and the steering strokes. Most experienced paddlers use an offset (feathered) paddle, but beginners may prefer to keep the blades square.
