We kayaked the Hells Bay trail in January and had a great time. The trail is well marked for the most part and easy enough for a beginner paddler. The chickee was windy, but in good repair. It would have been slightly uncomfortable if the other camp of the 2 site chickee was in use, just based in privacy and proximity. If you are in the fence, you should totally do this paddle/camp. We didn’t see much wildlife at all - just a few fish and a few birds.
