Fat bikes and packrafts on beaches and bays.

I like it. Looks like a great trip.

WOW! Combining my favorite two modes of transportation!

Closest I've come to this is bike shuttles on Boulder Creek and Slaughterhouse.

Grayboy from Surly has some blog posts about bike rafting back in MN.
Good bike tech specs for anyone looking to pull this off. Or who really hates shuttles. Looks like they were cruising on some Puglsy wheels in the vid.

Beautiful scenery!

I do the bike shuttle thing as well here on the Animas town run, but that's completely tame compared to this.
