Adventurer Pete Goss completes epic kayak journey
Cornwall adventurer Pete Goss and his partner Andy Warrender have completed their epic 1,500km circumnavigation of Tasmania by sea kayak.
The paddling pair battled the big swell of the Southern Ocean, were capsized by breakers as they came ashore and camped out in some remote and wild places during their 50-day journey.
And the adventure also took in some amazing sights, white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, brought them close to rays, dolphins, albatross, wombats and kookaburra.
Pete, 51, said that the trip has exceeded all expectations: "If I had to choose my favourite section it would be the west coast for it is wild, remote and one is always aware of the Southern Ocean. If I had to choose the most beautiful it would be the Freycinet Peninsula and for warmth, and kindness I would have to embrace the whole island."
