In summer, sunrise is around 5 a.m., so it is already high in the sky, and warm, early in the morning. There are some places that provide shade but they are not on the water. Make sure to bring sunscreen and an umbrella for coverage There is plenty of parking but some can be a little walk away. There is also a wetsuit rental nearby.
Mornings are gorgeous. It's busier in the evening during the summer and the weekend evenings include a large, younger, louder crowd.
