There’s nothing quite like a mid-week paddle. With work taking up most of my waking hours, the only option was to go at night, and what better spot to paddle at night than the magnificent Sydney Harbour.
Of course, paddling at night has a certain surreal and somewhat fearful ambiance to it. The water is inky black, and in Sydney Harbour lives a healthy population of sizeable and aggressive bullsharks.
Keeping this in mind, Gelo and I set off for a leisurely paddle from Luna Park to Taronga Zoo, dodging ferries and pleasure cruisers. For me, it was just another chance to enjoy the city lights whilst surfing ferry wake in the dark. For Gelo however, it was a far scarier journey.
The video below is the first Gelo-Produced featured on FatPaddler.com. I think his perspective adds an interesting dimension to night paddling in Sydney. Enjoy! Cheers, FP
