Bass by Kayak



(Also available in 30 mins) Bass by Kayak follows a small expedition party crossing in sea kayaks from the Australian mainland to Tasmania. Four hundred odd people have made the crossing in the modern era, and Aboriginal Australians did it during the last ice age in canoes. For the seafarer, linking together the perfectly spaced islands feels like a rite of passage. Adventure filmmaker Beau Miles narrates the expedition as the first ever feature film of the crossing via sea kayaks. There is chafe, a storm, bad cooking and an emerging mate-ship between men that barely know each other. The film presents spectacular footage of Bass Strait and the islands that link the mainland to Tasmania. Best Sea Kayaking Film – Reel Paddling Film Festival 2018 & Waterwalker Film Festival 2018.
