    Skill Level
    The James River can be rough in windy conditions. The lower section of the island is the most exposed and has the highest potential for rough water. The currents in the Thorofare can be strong, and the channel connecting Sandy Bay with the James River can have one of the fiercest rips in the region. You will need to be very aggressive and confident as you paddle through its currents and whirlpools.
