Hi Allan, I’m interested in weekend paddles in April. I’m also skiing in March. 🙂 I can sometimes paddle on Mondays and Fridays as well – it depends on my work schedule. I have a wet suit, but not a dry suit. I have been to Thornamby a number of times. There are some unofficial and more hidden camp options in coves along the south end of South Thornamby as well. For small groups only. Other paddle-and-camp destinations sound good too.
