Had a lovely morning with Will our experienced kayak instructor. He talked us through how to get into and settled in the kayak. We set sail on quite a choppy morning so it was quite an experience trying to manage the buoyancy and look where...More

It was too windy to go on the open sea so we were driven to a nearby sea loch (Loch Feochan) and launched into calm salt water. During the trip we met seals with pups and paddled through shoals of moon jellyfish. We also saw...More

Couldn't have asked for better weather for our half-day excursion. The small group size and friendly guide made an a nice afternoon out. Saw (harmless) moon jellyfish, sea urchins and sunbathing "hairy coos" on the trip.

We spent a half day sea kayaking with instructor Will. He was great and patient with the three adults and two nine year olds in our party. The instruction was pitched right and we really enjoyed a gentle paddle round the coast. Highly recommended.

We booked a half day family session for four adults and one child. The trip was late setting off and seemed a little under prepared at first but our guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and patient. The session on the water was brilliant. Lots of...More
