On multiday trips we typically do 15 to 20 miles. We schelual our timing to go with the tides, as they can run over 3.5 knots. So know your tide tables and get up to travel with them. We have left a 3:00 AM to do this. It is great to be out all alone in the dark. With the flow we easily do 20 and at times 25 knots. We only paddle for 8 hours a day, max.
