Bass Strait Crossing - Video

Post by EK Sydney » Fri Mar 02, 2018 11:12 pm

Here's a video of our crossing of Bass Strait, the 330km stretch of water between the Australian Mainland & Tasmania earlier in the month.

We saw everything on the water from our own reflection, to the might & fury of this daunting stretch of water when it gets angry.

Such a beautiful & complex place, hope you enjoy the images.

Mark.

Huge respect for getting across that particular bit of water, it scarred the sh1t out of us when we did it, and we were on a massive car ferry.

Everything seems to be awesome these does but this film truly is. Probably the best film of a sea kayaking expedition I've seen. Absolutely fantastic - and I'm definitely going to visit Tasmania.
