Put-in/Take out: Dauphin Island, East end, on the beach northwest of the
Ferry Restrooms.

rudder or skeg is recommended.

Route: Kayak around the east end of Dauphin Island and go approx 2.5 miles

north side of Sand Island to the northern most tip (about 3 miles).
Somewhere along Sand Island, I plan on testing out my self rescue equipment
by doing a couple of self rescues. Short Break. Then we'll go north to the
south side of Dauphin Island, kayaking along the shore all the way back to
the launch site (about another 3.5 miles).
Warning: No shade. Consider bringing hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, standard
safety gear, bathing suit, and plenty of fluids - suppose to be almost 80
