WHAT TO EXPECT
This is your chance to explore the north west coast with the unique perspective only a sea kayak can bring. Our expert guides will help tailor your day to ensure it is a memorable adventure. We keep our groups small to ensure a more personal feel with all of our trips.
A normal day for us starts at 10am at our pre-arranged location based on the weather and your requirements. Our guides will kit you up with Gore-Tex Kokatat Dry tops and trousers, spray decks and buoyancy aids before an introduction to the skills you will need on the water. No previous experience is required. There are many interesting features for us to explore along the coast and lots of chances to spot wildlife, we often see seals. Our Kelly Kettle stove which we carry with us gives the opportunity to light a fire and heat hot drinks to enjoy on a remote beach. We aim to return at approximately 4pm back to our start point, ready for you set off on your next adventure.
Our team are passionate about the local flora, fauna, geology and history. We love to teach about what lurks in the kelp at low tide, how the rocks that you paddle through formed and the folk stories around them. The west coast is a perfect haven for Seals, Birdlife and even the illusive otter.
EQUIPMENT WE PROVIDE
KAYAKS We have a new 2018 fleet of P&H Scorpio sea kayaks in a variety of sizes. Their new CoreliteX plastic makes them wonderfully light and responsive as well as offering great stability for learning new tricks.
PADDLES: Our paddles our fibreglass Werner Shuna blades, light and easy to use.
BUOYANCY AID: We use Kokatat’s Proteus PFDs. We like these for their high cut back which offers greater manoeuvrability in the boats and have super warm fleece lined hand warmers too!
SOFT GEAR: We will equip you with Kokatat Jackets and over-trousers to help keep you dry. Tough and comfortable, they are the perfect combination for any Scottish weather. We also kit you up with P&H spraydecks which fit our boats perfectly. Their fabric waist tube and velcro cinches fit all sizes.
