STORY

Shown as a guide, each trip has its own story, plans are always open to change.

*BUILDING SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE - We'll take some time to establish the needs of the group and set out a plan for the weekend. The focus will be on having a good time sea kayaking but also finding challenges and situations that will help you develop as a sea kayaker. We'll keep a careful eye on conditions and combined with our local knowledge we will be able to find some excellent places to paddle.

We'll spend both days journeying in the Arisaig area - there are loads of possibilities for intermediate paddlers and we could take on longer journeys such as a circumnavigation of Eilean Shona. Over the course of these journeys we'll tackle challenges as they arise, offering coaching to help you build on existing skills and learn new things on the way. If you are thinking about doing any longer or higher graded guided trips or would like to progress to owning your own kayak then this course would form valuable preparation.

The weather on the West coast of Scotland can vary through the course of the season and from area to area - Scottish islands and coastline can see dramatically better weather and more sunshine than more mountainous areas inland. The wind speed and sea state are the primary factors that affect the trip - if the conditions are difficult then we will seek out a more sheltered section of coast to run the trip. You should note that it is very rare that we have to stay off the water on multi-day trips and the vast majority of trips run as planned.
