Enjoy an adventure and the chance of getting out on the water. Experience some fun and enjoyment kayaking with family, friends or each other straight onto the Atlantic ocean.
Our aim on a 2 hr scenic kayak trip is to get you to a wild un-spoilt location along our dramatic Atlantic coastline.
For our 2 hour scenic kayak trips we use modern user-friendly sit-on-top kayaks. Once you arrive (after introductions) you are issued with a wetsuit, footwear, bouyancy aid and a helmet, and each paddler is given a boat to fit their suitability and a paddle for the trip. A safety brief and practical demo is then given prior to paddlers taking to the water to gain water confidence and familiarity. Basic paddling skills are also covered and practiced before the group head off onto their trip on the Atlantic Ocean.
