We kayaked across to this uninhabited island and spent 3 hours exploring and snorkeling. Kayak from Southern Cross cost $25/hr or $65 for the day. Bring water shoes and drinks. Some of the shoreline is rocky. Crabs hiding in mangroves.

Getting to Owen island requires brute strength against wind and current which pushes against your kayak getting there- recommend speed boat or being accompanied by strong Olympic medal kayak person!! Let people know when you head there- do not go alone, the water is clear...More

current is hard to paddle out to the island, but a breeze to paddle back to the main island. Bring what you need, because no serrices are provided.
