Explore the little coves and inlets and enjoy watching the numerous sea birds swirling above you or diving ahead into the clear waters.  If you are very lucky you may enjoy the company of a visiting dolphin or porpoise – they love to play with the kayaks. Quiet early morning visitors to the harbour will enjoy sea otters fishing or floating relaxed in the sheltered waters. Float past the flowering gorse bushes and inhale their heady coconut scent.

Orthorn Island is in the centre of Adrigole Harbour and nesting grounds for Sea Turns and Oyster Catchers – we request that visitors DO NOT land on the island during nesting season and enjoy these graceful birds from the water.
