One of our aims was to get to Zoe Bay this trip on the outside of Hinchinbrook Channel. Departed Little Pioneer Bay having watched large Manta Rays swimming around the boat during breakfast..
Arrived Zoe Bay with a huge swell rolling into the bay, not to be put off, we packed lunch, launched the dinghy and surfed onto the beach, tied up the dinghy on the ‘beware of crocodiles’ sign and walked up the mountain. Our reward was a freshwater falls and swimming holes, spent few hours swimming having lunch and enjoying the view. We returned to the boat and had planned to go up the creek on high tide, however looking at the swell crashing in we decided to head back to little pioneer, left Zoe at 1600 and arrived at little pioneer 2000, tired but happy.
