Seven of us went out for a couple of hours along the mangroves down towards Nelsons Bay then crossed the river and headed back to the bridge. Good family fun but don't forget the sunscreen.

We had so much fun doing stand up paddle boarding - would highly recommend. You can do on your knees to make it easier or standing up. The instructors were very helpful
