Isles Of Scilly Sea Kayaking
Have you ever wanted to go on a journey in a sea kayak? Carrying everything you need with you, travelling with the wind and weather, and exploring what comes along? Challenging yourself to live light? Then join us. Just enjoy being guided or make the most of our experienced instructors and gain tuition as you go. The cost includes your guiding fee, kayaking kit (boat, spray deck, paddle, buoyancy aid, cag, helmet and long john wetsuit) and camping fees.
Please note that we also offer three and four day trips based from St Martin's that are more suitable for complete beginners and upwards.
Wake to the sound of the birds before packing your tent up and paddling off for chance encounters with puffins, seals and razorbills. Spend the day exploring the many islands within this amazing archipelago. Meet new people, and re-live the day's adventures over a drink in the island pub, before perhaps walking up the hill to watch the sunset. Then it's back to the tent for a well earned sleep.
The four and five day trips are for intermediate paddlers. Depending on the weather some of the crossings can present more of a challenge, therefore this trip is not suitable for complete beginners (beginners welcome on our 3 day trips).
You must be able to do the following:
- Paddle a sea kayak, Paddle five days in a row, for an average of 4-6 hours a day depending on the weather and the group
- Carry your camping kit from the beach to the campsite which may be up to a 500m away
- Travel light and be happy to sleep in a small tent
- Have had some experience of paddling in either lumpy seas, windy conditions or moderate waters at times.
The easiest way to find out if the trip is for you is to give us a call and chat it through with us. If you spend a lot of time on the water doing other sports then your confidence and sea awareness may be good enough.
