The journey there was point to point until we got close to Gwineas rocks off Gorran Haven. In the distance and out to sea we could see white water which on closer inspection were small overfalls on the Gwineas reef. We paddled through this until we reached deeper water and the Cardinal buoy.
The trip back to Porthpean was a treat and by this time the fog had completely cleared and we saw the first swimmer nearing his goal. This coast has many secluded beaches, interesting rock strata, caves, arches, seals and an abundance of seabirds. Be sure to pop into Mevagissey harbour and hug the coastline to get the best out of this trip, as there is much of interest to see.
