Tides and sea conditons
The prevailing current sweeps towards this shore, so the outward trip is a fairly easy paddle, depending on the cross winds. There is a buoy at the half way mark which helps keep you on course and I usually stop at it for a rest.
There is a bit of an unpredictable rip tide if the sea gets up and swirls around the island but that only adds to the enjoyment of this satisfying Pembrokeshire paddle.
