Previous experience isn't a requirement of booking one of our sea kayaking trips, however we would highly recommend it. The reality is, our specialist kayak guides and stable kayaks are ideal for those new to kayaking, however being able to assist your teammates with paddling and self rescue in the case of capsize will give you the confidence to make the trip much more enjoyable for yourself and your team. If you want to paddle among icebergs, see whales breaching the surface of the ocean or just discover truly untouched wilderness, there really is nothing stopping you.
Travelling by kayak in a wilderness environment is a totally different experience to moving on foot. You can access islands, remote peninsulas and hidden coves that would otherwise be impossible to reach. Camp out in inaccessible locations and have close encounters with marine life such as whales, dolphins and sea eagles. There is a certain peacefulness to gliding through the water, watching the landscape gradually change around you as you make progress, that is hard to explain. Spectacular scenery and the rhythmic spalsh of your paddles combine to create a restorative and almost hypnotic calmness.
We provide all the specialist equipment that you will need including kayaks, paddles, dry suits, buyancy aids, dry bags and all your camping gear. We place great importance on providing only the highest quality kit to ensure you have a comfortable and safe experience out on the water. Our guides are all highly experienced, fully qualified and passionate about exploration by kayak. Many of our kayak trips do not require previous experience but we also offer more extreme trips for those looking for a serious challenge.
