Accompanied by local expert staff who are passionate about paddling explore (depending on the departure point) caves, cliffs, sea arches and remote beaches. All the time we’ll keep our eyes open for Dolphin and dozens of different seabirds.

About our Sea Kayak Tours

Our equipment and approach are designed to maximise your enjoyment and success. Director Derek Hairon is the author of the UK’s best selling manual on sit-on-top kayaking and the Channel Island Sea Kayaking Guidebook.

Choose single or tandem sit-on-top sea kayaks. For the more experienced we have closed cockpit sea kayaks and high-performance kayaks and surf skis.

Who are our tours suitable for?

For adults and families who want to explore our magnificent coastline and wildlife, those who enjoy being in the outdoors and on the sea.

No previous experience is needed. Our expert staff and user-friendly sit-on-top kayaks will give you the confidence to have fun afloat as you explore the coastline.

Our sit-on-top sea kayaks are stable. However, this is a water sport, and you might fall in so expect to get wet. We supply wetsuits from child to XXL size (ladies sizes 8-18) along with windproof jackets and all safety kit.

Unlike sit inside kayaks, there is no need to worry about capsize drills and “wet exits”. If you request a sit inside kayak, you must have previously used a spraydeck and have done a wet exit with a spraydeck. We do not take paddlers afloat in a sit inside kayak without a spraydeck.

Expect to get wet so do not take cameras, mobile phones, car keys etc. on the tour unless you are sure that they are fully waterproof. If in doubt, you can leave them in our vehicle.

Fitness

Kayaking is an active sport and involves physical effort. You should be of average fitness and in good health. If you find it difficult to sit upright for any length of time, please contact us before booking. As a rough guide, if you drive your car with the seat very reclined, it is likely that you may find sitting on the kayaks arduous, even with back support.

In the event of a capsize you need to be able to get back on board with assistance. This is like climbing out from the side of a swimming pool by pulling/sliding yourself onto the poolside (without pushing off the bottom of the pool with your feet). If this is difficult for you or a member of your party, please contact us before you book.

Heights and weights

For your enjoyment and safety help us ensure we have the correct sizes of kit and kayaks available by telling us your clothing size when you book. If we do not have this information, we may not have the right equipment for your trip.
If you weigh over 15.2 stone (96kg) or have a Body Mass index (BMI) of 33+, you must tell us your height and weight (use the additional information section). In some cases, we may suggest we meet in advance to try out the kayak and re-entry techniques. Calculate your BMI.
