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.

Although we had a one hour delay to our trip, the experience I had sea kayaking with Oban Kayak was really impressive. Chris, our guide, was good at helping me improve my paddling technique with out being pushy. He was especially great at assisting another...More
I joined Sea Kayak Oban for an introductory level course. I did enjoy my day but found the ratio of 1:8 not helpful when it was clear the group had mixed skills and confidence. I was a complete novice and found the pace just a...More
