Sup Launch Location:
Freshwater Bay: The Esplanade, Peppermint Grove. Launch from The Esplanade or from Keanes Reserve end of Johnson Street. (Mosman Bay Sea Scouts Group). I like launching from here if I’m heading to Freo as you don’t have the extra paddle around the Freshwater Bay yacht pen.
Free parallel parking along The Esplanade, Peppermint Grove. Very popular in Summer so parking could be a problem.
There is a new building being built where the old cafe and ablutions used to be. To be updated.
BBQ & Picnic Areas:
Lovely grassy picnic area right on the foreshore. BBQ’s on the other side near the Mosman bay Sea Scouts Club.
To be advised. New building under construction.
Safety Notes/General Comments:
Be mindful of submerged tree branches and old jetty posts near the river’s edge. Check wind conditions before heading out as this can be a choppy section but beautiful when the wind is low. Heavy boat traffic including big ferries if you venture out of the bay.
This is a great practice area. Or, just enjoy cruising around the boat moorings and enjoy the bay. Dolphins often spotted here.
