Sea Kayaking and Snorkelling

Sea kayak half day - £55 per person
Single supplement of £45 applies
We choose our locations based on wind and swell direction on the day, so cannot promise in advance that we will paddle in any given location. At all our locations you will experience beautiful scenery and a feeling of remoteness. Wildlife is ever-present and the water is clear and full of life.
Sea Kayak full day - £80 per person
Single supplement of £60 applies
Is this for you?? A full day is not recommended for complete beginners unless you are fit and flexible. Sea kayaking is strenuous and some people find the posture tiring. Beginners will be given some basic coaching in a very sheltered location before embarking on a short journey with rest stops.

More experienced kayakers are likely to be exposed to choppier conditions and a longer journey, although there will still be rest stops and opportunities to beach and stretch the legs.
