So we did our research and due dilligence to make sure we had a) a vehicle permit, b) a barge that would take us over really early in the morning and c) the tide tables. The day started at 5:30 am wake up and 6:10 departure for 2 hour drive up to Inskip Point, where we donned the permits, barge pass and lowered the tyre pressure to 18PSI (for those who don't know, this allows better traction in the sand AND the signs everywhere told us we had too!)
|Barge unloading, directly onto the sand beach.|
|See, not worried at all! (until we caught some air, and we later found out MANY people flip their vehicles doing what we were doing.)|
We drove directly inland, as the tides were too high for beach driving and followed the tour buses, until the road directed us back to the beach.

It was time to go! A tight schedule to ensure we get back to the ferry by 5 and beat the incoming tide! Next stop was at the shipwreck, 20 kms away back to the beach following our tour guide Jeff.
Just another day in paradise.....
