Sea Kayak Overnight Adventures

Venture into the Summer Isles for a night spent in the islands, a real off the beaten track experience. Spend the day exploring the caves, archways, beaches and wild-life along the rugged west coast before landing in a place of our choosing to pitch camp for the evening.

Whilst we may be wild, we by no means compromise with comfort. Our guides are experts at expedition camping and cooking. All our overnights trips include full catering with fresh local food and wine. After dinner the chance for an evenings gentle paddle to watch the sunset awaits, or if you prefer a rest ashore with a glass of wine to watch the sun sink over the western horizon. We will provide you with top-end tents and sleeping mats to ensure you have a good nights sleep so we can continue our adventure full of energy and enthusiasm.

Fresh, local organic food.

As part of our trip, it is our pleasure to offer excellent food. We might be camping but that doesn’t mean we miss out on a little luxury. We tailor our meal plans to fit your requirements. All of our meals are fresh, cooked by our guides and wherever possible organic and locally sourced.

At dinner we start with a tasty off-the-water snack followed by a deliciously cooked main meal and a sweet pudding. Finally, we provide an optional coffee with biscuits to end the dinner. A choice of red or white wine is also provided.

A choice of cooked or cereal breakfast is available throughout the trip with a range of hot drinks to get you all the energy we need to start the day. Fresh lunch and handy snacks are also provided.

It is our upmost priority on all our adventures to ensure you are safe, comfortable and catered for throughout our journey.

What to Expect

We select the exact venue and route of our overnight trips to best fit with the weather conditions. This allows us to be flexible to your needs and ability and maximise your enjoyment and ambitions. Our staff will be in touch within 36 hours of your trip commencement to confirm the meeting point, which is typically in Achiltibuie or Ullapool. Should we require a different location we will be in touch with good notice.

We meet at 10am on day 1 where we will provide you with camping equipment (we ask you bring your own sleeping bag) and food. Our guides will teach you the top tips and handy hints for packing our kayaks, it’s a great Tetris game.

Once on the water, the day is yours to choose. We can venture as far or as close as you desire into the islands whilst exploring the rugged delights of the elementally carved Torridonian sandstone coast. Whilst we travel it is our pleasure to help you develop and improve your paddling and wilderness skills, giving you greater confidence on and off the water.

When we are ready, we will select an island or headland to camp on. Our guides will help you in pitching the tents if you need. We also carry a large group tent, which gives us the chance to shelter from the rain, sun or midges should we wish. Even better, in good weather we can sit outside and enjoy the sunset.

Our guides will cook you delicious meals throughout to make sure we have all the energy we need. If you are feeling adventurous, after dinner we can venture back onto the water for a sunset paddle, one of the most magical experiences possible in a kayak before returning ashore to toast a glass of wine.

Whether out for one night or several, we will explore and camp at your pace.
On our final day, we return for approximately 3-4pm, allowing us time to unpack and organise our kayaks before heading onward to your next adventure.

On all of our trips we practice the Leave No Trace principles ensuring we leave our footprints as minimised as possible.
