WEEKEND SEA KAYAK TRIPS
We offer a range of weekend sea kayak trips from our base on the West coast of Scotland. Come and join us and explore some of the finest coastline in Scotland.
If you are new to sea kayaking and want to get to know the activity then choose from an Introduction to sea kayaking weekend or a weekend sea kayak adventure. Both of these trips offer the opportunity to explore the beautiful and wild coastline we have around Arisaig whilst also presenting a great opportunity to progress with sea kayaking and learn new skills.
We can also arrange weekend trips for any level of experience, simply get in touch to organise a weekend of sea kayaking in Arisaig.Take a look at the sea kayaking experience we offer.
WHICH TRIP TO CHOOSE?
We grade our trips into 3 different categories. These are definitely not rules!
These are given as a guide only and are there to help you decide on which trip is going to deliver the most enjoyable experience for you. If you are unsure then feel free to get in touch with us.
These trips are designed for people with little or no experience of sea kayaking or those with some sea kayaking experience who just want to go on a relaxing journey. The locations will be based on providing an enjoyable journey that is within the capabilities of a beginner but could be enjoyed by any level of kayaker.
- Have little or no experience of sea kayaking.
- Want to learn about sea kayaking.
- Want to have a good time exploring.
These trips are ideal for those who have some sea kayaking experience and want to build on their existing skills, or want to try a more challenging journey. These trips may involve full day of sea kayaking of around 15km and some slightly rougher conditions with winds around force 3/4. The emphasis is on exploring a wild area whilst building skills and experience in sea kayaking. If you have your BCU 2 star award then you'll fit in with these trips.
