Depart from the Lennox Island First Nation (rentals available), the only community that lives in Malpeque Bay. Within 20 minutes you reach Bird Island, an un-inhabited protected island important to the local indigenous peoples. Two route choices at this point: 1) south of Bird into the bay side heading southeast; or 2) north side of bird heading east. Either way, your goal is to reach Georges Island, approximately 50 minutes away. Again, you have a choice of which way you circumnavigate the island. The eastern side of the island features volcanic rock out-cropping; and a inlet/outlet that allows the you to paddle through a salt water marsh - Hog Island on Gulf side and George's Island on the Bay side. The rip varies in width (5-20 feet) and is quite deep. Once around George, you head west back towards Bird, and Lennox. You have circumnavigated two uninhabited and sacred indigenous islands (also can stop on Hog Island)..
