Sea Kyaking  is about getting away from all the stresses of everyday life. It appeals to everyone and is suitable for all abilities.  There are very few other outdoor sports where you are able to carry everything you require for a week or more and this weight is supported by the water over which you travel.  The weather can range from dreadful to absolutely stunning, not just in the winter but the summer months can also be unpredictable.

Novice paddler or expert, due to the nature of the Isle of Skye, it is nearly always possible to kayak somewhere that is suitable.  If you are looking to improve your kayaking skills, for a unique outdoor experience, want to get close to the wildlife or even just escape for a few days, we can arrange an itinerary to suit your requirements.
