    12 mile round trip to the Longships Light House 1.5 miles off Land's in Cornwall.
    Some really good caves with seals, and about 50 seals in the water at the old lighthouse.

    That looks lke a great trip too! Ive got a sit on kayak and a waterproof camera and have been trying to figure out how to attach the two together. I like your method, does that pole sit through one of the erainage holes?

    Thanks guys for the response, I had 7 hours worth of video to edit so sorry about the length but any shorter would not do it justice.

    the126 - Made my floating pole by epoxying a tripod mount in the top and a loop of rope in the bottom, it will float easy and flat on the top. I have a 90 degree rod holder to mount this pole into. They will just fit in the drain holes but it is not a good idea as these points could get damaged on the kayak. 90 degree holders are around £10 on ebay, pole made for about £2.50.

    Kwan - Yes I wanted to get in but the tide and currents are so unpredictable out there, I know seal are okay with us and surf with them close on local beach, also kayak with them locally at Portreath.
