A 3 day trip of enjoyable sea paddling exploring different sections of the coastline, with the main aim being to get across to Skomer to visit the enigmatic puffins.
The first day will be a warm up day, looking at improving your sea paddling skills, boat handling and basic trip planning (weather, tides and tidal streams etc). The next 2 days offer us the chance to pick the best conditions for the crossing, and to do another coastal paddle. All the routes we use offer great scenery and lots of interesting marine life, and alternatives if the wind is strong.
This course is non-residential. We will be camping from the Thursday night at West Hook Farm. You are welcome to join us if you like, or to make your own arrangements if you’d prefer more civilised sleeping! There are plenty of accommodation options nearby.
This course is for you if: You have good flat water kayaking skills, and are happy capsizing and would like to push yourself to the next level. It’s especially for those who feel “the pull of the sea” – the desire for fresh, sea air and the fun adventure of being guided along rugged coastlines that meet the mighty sea. If you aren’t sure just give us a call for a chat.
£190 if you have your own boat and kit
£220 if you’d like to use one of our boats
