You'll get to visit the stunning rock cliffs at Half Moon Bay, journey near 35 islands which are a mix of national parks and privately owned properties.

But one of the most spectacular sights is a sunken schooner that is viewable below the waves; there is no need to scuba dive to see the boat used to transport coal in the 1800s.

If you want to try it for yourself, the tour runs from May till October, or you can rent a kayak for three hours and go on a self-guided trip.
