It is a common misconception that previous experience is a requirement of booking one of our sea kayaking trips. The reality is, on most of our water based adventures you do not need any previous experience because our specialist kayak guides will provide all the training you need. 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 experience, fully qualified and passionate about exploration by kayak. Many of our kayak trips do not require any previous experience but we also offer more extreme trips for those looking for a serious challenge.
